After a decade as a health care professional, Priscilla returned to school to pursue her passion in glass, hoping to explore her views of the world and how her upbringing has influenced her disposition. Her work emphasizes how food, a basic human need, plays a central role in the culture, history, politics, gender identity, migration of people, their resistance, and human survival. Due to its vital role in human life, food is a universally understood medium that exemplifies social values of hospitality, compassion, empathy, gratitude, duty, and sacrifice. Her work looks to celebrate these values, while gaining a deeper understanding of how historically hegemonic patriarchal cultures have affected the complex and contradictory relationship that females have with food.
