I am Elise. A passionate french-icelandic illustrator.
Thanks for meeting me !
I grew up in the East of France, in Jura, by the Swiss border. My dream then was to own a panda and to become an explorer. Well... I own an enormous black and white cat and I am exploring dreams and visual landscapes.
Not too bad at the end of the day. ^^
I graduated in graphic design in Estienne school in Paris and La Cambre school in Brussel
but always favored illustration.
I've been working as a board game artist since then
and I am particularly proud of being the artist behind Shadi Torbey's Oniverse serie.
I currently lives in the North of Iceland along the fjörd Skagafjörður and is constantly inspired by the wilderness and beauty of the nature around me. Sometimes, while drawing on my desk, I see whales passing by in the fjord through the window on my left.
I love traditional way of making images : getting my fingers dirty and colorful, mixing coffee
and water paint and drawing until my eyes get red.
Let me know if you have some projects in mind !
