Priscilla Elisa Diaz Urzua is a freelance artist living in Toronto, Canada. Priscilla developed a passion for writing at the early age of 11, this passion becoming an outlet "where pen and paper is all that ever feels, where I let out how I truly feel without any fear". Often she found herself recording life experiences, words becoming therapeutic. Late 2009 words escaped her, after experiencing some of life's challenges she had hit a bottom she was struggling to thread trough.
She decided to paint; not knowing where to begin she began, picked up a canvas and paint. Her first was The Gift of Life. started with a simple thought, her emotions now visions. "Creativity, a need much like the air I breathe" is how she describes her passion for painting.
in 2014 after suffering a loss, painting became a means to overcome. Challenging herself in her creativity, learning new techniques such as watercolour. A medium she finds challenging as water wants to flow and she would prefer to remain in control. A process she is learning balance from and applying to her acrylic paintings and life.
Elisa feels, experiences and tells a story through her paintings. Her first solo exhibit "Faceless" named after the character often depicted in her work, a tribute to the ones who endure/overcome struggles and often remain unknown. Followed by "Faceless, the Process of Evolution" a vow to continue the journey of spiritual growth. Priscilla would like to provoke your imagination and for you to feel life's beauty through all the pain and joy.
