Hello! My name is Elise! (she/her)
I have a Bachelor's in Art + Design from Towson University and a Masters in Publishing from Edinburgh Napier University. I am an Illustrator with an interest in kidlit art and traditional materials. I enjoy hiking and running a lot. I am familiar with Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator to work and use Procreate to do a lot of digital drawings. I am currently learning Irish and (relearning) German and I've started working on Greek and Italian.
My favorite Irish word is Sionnach, it means Fox! My favorite German word is Igel, it means Hedgehog! I don't have a favorite Greek or Italian word yet but I'll get back to you when I do. My current favorite book is 'The Secret Garden', but I love 'Heidi' too. I read all of Susanne Collin's 'Piranesi' in one day and adored it. My favorite food is any sort of pasta, I can't decide (but classic spaghetti is always a go to)! I love to bake bread. I can play the guitar, but I always just play Greensleeves over and over again. Going to Ikea is an all-day affair. The best days are the rainy ones!
I currently work at Holyrood Communications as a full-time production assistant.
