Elissa is a freelance children's illustrator and author who spends her days conjuring up strange oddities from her colourful desk in London's Fleece Station Studio.

When she's not scribbling with her favourite pencil, scrawling and tapping on her computer or splashing watercolours about, she's sewing strange little monsters or gluing eyes on inanimate objects, all in the name of fun.
