Les Calinous are a collection of tender, sensual embraces where the quasi-abstraction of the bodies and the solid colors protects the modesty of the spectator. At the same time, they "look through my eyes"; unknown desires and fantasies are revealed.

Hi folks, I'm Elise, half-artist, half-nerd. I love strong lines, color blocks and Dutch skies. I have done several painting exhibitions in Amsterdam, Den Haag and Rotterdam, and worked as a portrait artist. Now I mostly focus on illustrations and paintings on request (love to make people happy), and cartoons for myself. If you have the imperious need to hang something on your wall you can drop me an email there:
