What I love about Pinterest is that it introduces me to artists, techniques, and ideas that I didn’t even know that I wanted to know! Today I stumbled upon a new artist to me. She is a mixed media artist and her name is Elfi Cella. She is from Switzerland. I can’t find a lot about her on the internet, but she does have a blog and a lot of her art is posted to Pinterest. I can’t find an actual website or a link to where you could purchase her work, which is a shame. If you are interested, you could contact her through her blog elf2mani.blogspot.com
This artist uses mixed media in a charming and unique way. She incorporates different types of texture media and traditional painting with embedded everyday items and textiles such as lace to create paintings that seem to come straight of of nature. In the past, I’ve experimented with some of these techniques in a very limited way, but not to the wonderful effects that Elfi does!
Here are just a few examples of her wonderful art:
