Elsie’s real name is Ellen and I have a passion for paper, collage and mixed media. To store all my work in an orderly fashion I decided to focus my attention to bookbinding. I started taking courses from a professional bookbinder and continued to create my own books with a lot of fun and eye for detail ever since. It is a real challenge to translate a creative idea into a beautiful crafted endproduct, which is what drives me. Come back to check my website or instagram pages regularly because there is a lot of new stuff coming soon!

Warm regards, Elsie.
