WHO IS ELYSSE?
Elysse is a passionate & eccentric Londoner who loves to create art. Elysse is an abstract painter, author, ex-scientist and social entrepreneur who relishes imparting enthusiasm for truly living life and creating art. In her book “Naked” Elysse explains what drives her to live life to the fullest, create art and how you can too.

Elysse enjoys drawing & photography but is primarily an abstract expressionist painter. Her beautiful abstract paintings are luxuriously presented in hand-crafted wooden frames, and garner the interest of collectors from all over the world. Elysse calls her style of creating Fierce Painting. The freedom to paint without thinking is what drives her, as a result, her works are energy charged, diverse, vibrant, colourful & emotive making them uniquely stunning pieces for any environment. Influenced by all aspects of life, Elysse’s works are inspired by what she calls The 5 Senses for creating (Colour, Shape, Texture, Behaviour & Nature). Elysse often combines painting with her love for writing and uses her imagination to build a story around some of her pieces, as in The Revolt of Pluto.

Elysse personally invites you to view her work by browsing the gallery shop and welcomes you to get in touch if you have any questions, or, would simply like a chat about how she creates her work. You can now request a free 5 x 4 inch print sample (while stocks last). If you would like to meet Elysse, you can catch her at any of her poetry or debating events in London.
