Priscilla Yu is a truly creative soul. Over the years I’ve known Priscilla, I’ve seen her art transform into many different mediums; paint, digital, sculptural, and fabric, and have even been privy to a few of her beautiful poems too. Each time, I am amazed by the stories she entwines into her pieces. Her art is a language which holds so many intricacies; every brush stroke has a purpose, and every colour has a meaning. When you get the opportunity to spend time with Priscilla, she brings you into her magical world and you get to experience things through her eyes.
Priscilla’s work has been showcased worldwide and she’s been commissioned by multiple large organizations such as Facebook, Instagram, Lululemon and 3M Scotch Tape. It doesn’t matter though who Priscilla is creating work for, her joy and dedication remain constant. Her north star remains bright. When Priscilla works on a project, I see how much life she breathes into it, so much so, you can’t help but revisit her work over and over, because each time you do, it lets you dive in a little deeper.
