About The Artist


  Originally from a quiet town in Massachusetts, Elsie took on NYC to obtain her BFA in 2009 from SVA. Currently residing in Austin, Texas she paints to pique interest and curiosity in the female form.

"As ever changing beings, the idea of capturing a portrait seems in vain. My work is not about realistic portraits but of the person captured through color and emotion. The female figure is of most interest to me. Ideas of her growth in sexuality and loss of innocence are often an underlying subject."
