Growing up on a farm, Elyse was always finding material to make art with. Using pieces from the old barn, yard, garden, greenhouse and anywhere else. Then creating with staples, magazines, nails, cross-stitching, string, knitting, acrylic paint, sewing, old furniture, screws, beads, clay, wire and large amounts of white glue usually listening to music. Passing the time creating window art, teddy bear clothes, new furniture, jewellery, babysitting, picking tomatoes in the greenhouse and caring for animals. Seeing the potential in old objects to create new art and adding to a collection of collections. Presently, she's working as an early childhood teacher and still creating art from various materials. She combines her love of teaching, music, plants, animals and art to share with her 2 young children and students. Creating macramé, sewing, giving furniture a new life, a salamander, fish and always plants are some of the latest projects for Craft E Corner while still using ridiculous amounts of white glue and acrylic paint.
