About Me

"When I grow up, I want to be an artist, to paint” 
This was and still is my hearts truest wish.

My name is Elise Maree. I am an admirer of Peter Pan Collars, hand written letters and a collector of finely decorated dessert plates. 

Growing up I would spend endless hours laying beneath the sky, whether it be making pictures with the clouds or wishing upon the stars, My imagination became a well-acquainted friend who I would often go and visit.

Art for me is an expression of what I feel and what I know. The paper becomes the meeting place of where my heart and my thoughts can speak. It’s a place where I can tell my stories. 

I am completely captured and inspired by paper, colours, texture and all things whimsical and wonderful. I love combining dainty and delicate details into my art pieces, creating these secret and unexpected moments that enable the viewer to be surprised or filled with joy. Through my art I desire to invite and transport people to other places. Places where they can encounter things they have never seen or imagined before. Places one can dream, ponder, giggle and feel like a child again.
