about elise

I work in acrylic and mixed media. My favorite materials are cardboard and newspaper. My favorite colors are orange and teal but I have recently found I LOVE yellow ochre. Who knew? I enjoy working in brilliant color and like images that are raw and not so perfect - images that have lots of markings and history. Color combinations are more important to me than the subject most of the time.

And ask my family, I cannot stop drawing circles, on everything.

I live in Austin, TX with my husband and two baby girls. Well, they’re not actually babies, they are 9 and 4.
