About Elise Black

I am an artist with various bodies of work, some 2 dimensional, some 3 dimensional....most are mixed media utilizing various found, repurposed or unconventional materials. My work as a fashion designer during the 1980's influences this body of work which utilizes sewn elements, sequins, leather, and fabric. My work appears in many private, corporate and public collections.
