#EliseMareeAtPikto


Hi One and All.
Hope you are all ready for Christmas time!
I just cant believe how fast this year has gone!!
Goodness gracious me.

Anyway!
I just wanted to share with you some fun photos from my Saturday at Pikto Gallery.
As you may, or may not know- I currently have a exhibition on in the Distillery District at Pikto (Up until early jan) and last weekend we held a kids craft work shop, an Elise Maree Pop up shop, as well as a meet the artist!

Honestly I think it was one of the most wonderful days ever Ive lived in!
There was one point where I was stuck in the corner with my friend Vanessa cause the gallery was so jam packed!

I must say it was pretty//VERY humbling and surreal moment for me and I thought to myself- this is what Im meant to be doing...forever! 

A massive thank you to everyone who said hello, played in the workshop and got lost in my art.
You make it all worthwhile.

Much Love
Elise Maree.

Ps. I would love to encourage you coming into the new year- discover what you love, seek it out, hunt it down and once you find it- never let it go.

The Love of Paper


The Love of Paper
from Chelsea Gomez on Vimeo.


With great excitement I want to share with you something we have all been waiting for & with the official opening of my exhibition at Pikto in the Distillery District TODAY I felt the release of this couldn't be more timely!

So here it is..
"The Love of Paper"

This delightful video was produced and shot by my very lovely and ever so talented friend Chelsea (who is a freelance multi-media journalist) just so you could have a little insight into who I -Elise Maree am and to see some of what I do and how I create my art.

A massive thank you to you Chelse for all your hard word, vision, willingness and just your heart to go above and beyond to make this all that I dreamed it to be.
Your truly wonderful!

(She and her husband have something up their sleeve to release soon so ill keep you posted)

I hope you adore this as much as I do.
Love Elise Maree.

On the rooftops of london, coo what a sight.

As you may or may not know off I went to one of my favourite cities in the wold- LONDON.
 I came for my dearest friends birthdays, as well as her brothers wedding day, 
(which was so lovely).

Tomorrow I am leaving this wonderful country and am flying home (to Toronto) and await the embrace of all those who make that place my home.

Honestly, I have truly enjoyed myself and want to share some of my snap shots with you. 

My London adventure was filled with bike riding around Hyde Park in search of Peter Pan. Roaming through lavender fields, sipping lavender tea (-as well as endless amounts of any tea for that matter), lots of catching up and giggling with friends, Laduree' macaroon dates, long train rides, midnight walks and talks, cobble stone pathways, encounters with fox's, finding such delight in the english accent, ripping up dance floors and in the end I take all of these memories with me, as well as taking Big Ben home in my pocket -on a keychain.

London, Its always a pleasure. 
Thank you for having me!
(until next time)

Love Elise Maree.

I love you hundreds and thousands



This is my latest print.
"I love you hundreds and thousands"

For those of you who may look at this and say-"What in the world is this...?"
Let me tell you...

This my friends is the very famous "Fairy Bread" which could be found (and I'm sure still can be found) at almost every Australian child's birthday party.

All Fairy Bread is, is white bread, covered in margarine or butter and then covered in sprinkles or "hundreds and thousands" and its always cut into triangles. 

Its so fun!
and I miss not seeing it line table tops at birthday parties.

Now if you haven't tried it before maybe pop to the shop and pick up some bread, butter and some sprinkles/hundreds and thousands, maybe even invite some friends over! 

Enjoy this and you can buy these here!
They are a limited edition so get in quick.

Much Love 
Elise Maree.

Oh Me, Oh My, Oh Joy.

Oh Me, Oh My, Oh Joy. 

I was just going over to the ever so inspiring  "Oh Joy" blog to have a look if there were any hints of her new line with Target and look at what I found... 
(There's a few things)

Lets start with this ABSOLUTELY, out of this world paper animation by the ever so talented paper artist ChloĆ© Fleury.

This particular paper animation is actually for the Oh Joy for Target Summer collection.
"A Sunny Picnic Party"

I am gob smacked at the lovely and fun details that are in this!
My favourite part is Joys little sandals and her socks! 

Tomorrow the US and Canada Target shelves will be full of these cheery and playful summer picnic delights.

This summer just got a whole lot better.

Love 
Elise Maree.
