Hi. I’m Elisa. I like to make things. I’m an Artist, Graphic Designer, Crafter, DIYer, Mom and Wifey.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I now reside in a smaller town named Lincoln just north of Sacramento. It is a slower pace, and I kinda love it. Lots of nature around. Living life with my other half (isn’t he dreamy?!?). He is AWESOME, and supports all of my crazy ideas. Together, we are doing our best to bring up our 2 minis, exposing them to as much good stuff as possible, including art, music, dance and sports.
I am professionally trained in graphic design, though I also studied fine arts in college.
This blogs showcases a variety of things including my graphic design work, my artwork, events/parties that I throw, and DIY projects that I’ve come up with.
I sell custom invitations and party accessories for all types of events. Everything is personalized and most everything is handmade. I am also available for painting commissions (my true love).
I am fortunate enough to have 2 littles in my life who I am teaching art to, which inspired me to start my kid’s painting classes. I hold classes a few times a month at my place with step-by-step kid themed paintings. This is so fun for all involved.
The technical stuff:
BA in Art from Cal State Hayward with an emphasis in Fine Art, Graphic Design and Multimedia.
Professionally working in graphic design since 2007. Have done work with companies big and small including brands like Jose Cuervo, Smirnoff, Captain Morgan, Tanqueray, Crystal Geyser, Chevron and many more.
