THE STORY

Fully beginning her art career at the age of 16, Elyse had her paintings shown in the Towson Arts Collective for the first time. From there on, she was accepted into the Maryland Institute College of Art, attended the Baltimore Academy of Illustration, and began studying the art of book illustration and conceptual building. By the age of 18, she had her first exhibition at the Patterson Park Theatre in Baltimore, MD hosted by the Creative Alliance of Baltimore and "Pancakes & Booze," a traveling pop up show accepting artists on application base only. Only a year later, Elyse would continue to pursue her fine art career with the next exhibit sponsored by the Brookshire Hotel of Baltimore, MD, in 2015. After taking a two year hiatus due to health and the mundane 'work' world, Elyse would return to the art community by beginning a tattoo apprenticeship in November of 2017, and continuing shortly with her fourth gallery showing, and first solo exhibition, at Charmed Life Gallery on January 5th, 2018. Charmed Life is also the new home of her painting "Luminous." 

Elyse has since went on to begin her tattoo journey with her first tattoo being done on a trusting client on March 25th, 2018 and since then has progressed out of a traditional apprenticeship as of October 2018. She has now transitioned to her own flash days, conventions, and events on top of continuing to make hand crafted artwork and items.
