You can't use up creativity.

The more you use, the more you have.

Aileron Elise

Hello. I am a local artist here in Skagit County. Aileron Elise is the creative space I am cultivating. 

Being a part of the local creative markets is just beginning for me and I am so looking forward to the opportunity to grow and connect. 

An ‘aileron’ is a part of an airplane wing. The word is French in origin and means “little wing”. 

That is how I think of my art and creativity. Like little wings that float into existence and offer a little levity, some play, fresh air to breathe, space to find some light, and the chance to drift up above the noise.

Watercolor is my favorite. But I also love playing with gel pens, layers of paper, bright acrylics, and chopping up images and pages until my hands are covered in paint, ink and glue stick.
