About the Artist:
Elise’s technical wire-wrapped jewelry has been sold out of local shops and boutiques for most of her life, having started experimenting with wire when she first attended college. With a background in Physics and mathematics – she cherishes both science and art – and regards the craft of wire-wrapping akin to origami with wire. She also developed a fascination with antique and vintage buttons from which she creates larger brooches, decorations and housewares and is a member of the National Button Association. Just lately, she has also been branching out into painting and drawing, particularly of local flora and fauna. Currently, she is working at relaunching Algernon Arts as an independent company and hopes to host workshops for wire work and other crafts, including hosting events for local kids. She also volunteers at her children’s local school for both mathematics and art and hopes to eventually teach math, science, and art to grade school kids.

Sanda’s evocative acrylic and mixed-media artwork is an important part of her life, a necessary adjunct to her professional work as a psychotherapist and volunteer work as a docent at Henry Cowell State Park. Her warm, rich color and stroke convey impressions of the world she lives in, both human and natural, capturing the feelings, emotions, and relationships that make us human as they are evidenced by gesture, movement, and expression within a sense and feeling of the places that surround us.
