It was a round about way that I discovered multimedia artist, Elsa Mora. And “multi” is right. She has applied her talent in limitless ways. Her website made my eye-candy day in an otherwise gray one. It is time to interject some spring pastels even if spring is months away.
One of Elsa Mora’s many creations is her book Blossom Buddies: A Garden Variety (available through Amazon and some independent book stores).
“She carefully reconfigures plants to create a universe of unique characters. Inspired by time spent with her young autistic son . . . These floral personalities will draw you into their world of wonder and whimsy.” The book contains 133 beautiful bright color photographs of characters that she created using natural elements like flowers. You can see more Blossom Buddies at her website .
Be sure to look at her ‘galleries’ link too: jewelry, homemade fashion, illustration, papercutting and much more. Elsa lives in Los Angeles and her biography and written life observations offer an interesting read. I love her gift of whimsy and artistic versatility! More importantly, it seems every minute of her life is noticed, cherished, and expressed.
