Priscilla Bell, Philadelphia Member Since October 2013 Artist Statement I was born in North Philadelphia and raised in the Hunting Park section of the city. At the age of three, I started to doodle on the paper that my mother brought home from work. That was just the beginning. Drawing soon became my passion; I would scribble on any spare scrap of paper that I could get my little hands on, recording everything I saw and the people who I came in contact with.
I went on to graduate from Cardinal Dougherty High School and Community College of Philadelphia and then transferred to Moore College of Art and Design where I received my BFA in 2D Fine Arts. In 2010, I graduated with my Masters in Fine Arts in Painting.
Today, I am a parent, an art educator, and a painter. I feel that my present work still posses the element of documentation though it is not just of the tangible but also of emotion and "of the moment". Drawing and painting is what I love to do and I want to share that love with others.
