Princella Simonsen

Princella Simonsen was born in Glendale, California in 1945, growing up in the rather idyllic community of Eagle Rock, a hilly suburb of Northeast Los Angeles. Princella grew up surrounded by artistic, creative people. Grandpa did oil painting, fired clay sculpture and wood carving.  Grandma was an oil painter and Princella’s mother painted, sculpted and created beautiful leaded glass. Grandpa gave Princella her start in art by shortening the legs on an easel and giving her oil paints at the age of five.  

She attended Eagle Rock High school and majored in art from the 7th thru 12th grade.


Princella received a scholarship to Art Center Hollywood but quit to get married.

Princella began her artistic adventure by painting on cars, racecars, show bikes.  That work evolved into doing portraits and wall murals. She also created Western Art and sculpture for an exhibit and show at the old Dunes hotel.

Princella lived in Henderson, NV for 35 years and worked as a free-lance artist. She now lives in Pahrump, NV with her husband of 35 years and their spoiled rotten dogs.  In Pahrump, Princella created enough works for an exhibit and became a member of the Pahrump Arts Council, the Spring Mountain Art Guild and was on the board of directors that established the Pahrump Art Gallery.

Since her move to Pahrump, Princella has been commissioned to create three public works of art. She has a wall mural in the foyer of the Pahrump Art Gallery, a mining display in the History and Mining Museum, and another display of her work in the reading room in the Pahrump Community Library.
