Awe-inspiring is the beauty of God’s creation that it can capture our hearts much like His love for us. It moves me to respond by recreating those special moments. With each mark, stroke, layer and splatters of ink and paint on paper—my senses are rekindled like seeing something for the first time.~ Elisa Ang
Hello! I’m Elisa. This is my story
Joy in Art
My interest in art was cultivated during my childhood years. After watching cartoon shows I would recreate the story by drawing it comic style on a lined notebook. I would imagine stories and fill pages with various drawings. I also enjoyed leafing through children’s books or any books that have pictures on it and recreating them in my own way, dreaming to make a living out of art.
Perseverance & Patience
Moving into adulthood, my enthusiasm in art was still fresh even if I have moved to a different path (temporarily). Still my heart is thankful to God for I know He always has a purpose wherever he placed us. He sanctify and equip us for the work that He has prepared for us beforehand (Ephesians 2:10).
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.Ephesians 2:10
Even though the in-betweens were painful and challenging, God’s grace was enough. He has given me an opportunity to teach art and do creative work. My desire is to honor Him in all that I do and to bring the light of Jesus wherever I am placed. All by His grace.
Sketch in Pen & Watercolor Painting
I am a mixed media artist. I like to sketch with a pen and paint in watercolor as they are portable, and enable me to freely express the beauty of this world. I also started to explore printmaking particularly monoprint, intaglio and relief print. I find the process and outcome interesting and exciting. I enjoy making the best use of “throwable” stuffs and turn them into something valuable to encourage others to savor its beauty.
On making art, it is essential to do it often to train those creative muscles. Aside from books and online resources, what I find most helpful is the connections that I have made with other artists through participation in various creative activities.
I’m inspired by nature and places. ?I am strongly drawn to vivid colors, sunlight, shadows, mundane lives, ?quiet, old things, patterns. ?
?I enjoy a loose, abstract and minimal style of illustration. I like to use a combination of earthy, monochrome and striking colors on my artworks.
But we urge you…, to (love) more and more, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands…1 Thessalonians 4:9-12
