My name is Priscilla. I was born and raised in the Bronx. My brother inspired me to start making art. I practiced drawing with my brother. From there, I slowly fell in love with art. I became a bit of a cartoonist and strived to make my work better and better as I got older. When I started high school I became involved in teen art programs at the Cooper Union, The Bronx Museum, the Bronx River Art Center, and lastly, here at the Whitney. These programs taught me to experiment with a wide range of media, including different paints, markers, sculpting materials, and more. Hopefully these programs won’t be the end of my experience and I can take this art a lot further in my life.
