August 19-25 Resident Artist


Priscilla Witte

Priscilla Carpenter Witte is a Los Angeles based illustrator, painter, and muralist. She was born and raised in Clinton, NY, a small town outside of the Adirondacks. Since she was young, Priscilla, has always had a strong love for the arts. Whether it be trips to a museum, supporting local theater, or taking art courses such as photography, drawing, painting and sculpture. At 19 yrs old, after two years of dabbling in child psychology, she took a fateful summer trip to Southern California and never looked back. It was instant love! The California lifestyle and sunshine had a direct effect on how Priscilla wanted to live the rest of her life. She felt the strong desire to re-ignite her passion for the arts and like most new Angelenos, hotography would be her first medium. The new places, new friends, new experiences and adventures she was living amongst immediately fueled the need to capture and create but ultimately left her wanting more. It was only in her late 20’s that Priscilla started drawing again. After producing a small collection of works, she had her first show at a friends loft in Venice which was a total success and driving force for her to keep making art. The local support was overwhelming. Little by little projects started coming her way, as people started knowing her talents. Community was an important factor in the slow progression of her career. A snow ball effect.

Soon enough she was making murals at some of the top restaurants and tech companies in Los Angeles, sent to NY to create custom kicks for vogue editors, and flown to Croatia to paint a mural and do pieces for each room at a boutique hotel. She’s had the opportunity to work with some wonderful companies such as Google, life is good, GT’s Kombucha, Budlight, Redbull, Schwarzhopf, keds, Ipsy, Nordstrom, Credit Karma, Marriot… to name a few. Her style is simplistic, to the point, quirky, and relatable. Just like her!
