Elsa Mora

Today I would like to introduce you to an amazing artist named Elsa Mora.

She is a multi-faceted artist who was born in Cuba and now lives in Los Angeles with her Hollywood producer husband William Horberg.

She is a great illustrator:

Miniature artist with a passion for Frida Kahlo:

And, my favorite, the most amazing paper artist:

You will find many, many more examples of her whimsical art at her main blog where writes beautifully about her art and her family. She recently started her papercut blog which is chockfull of resources for paper artists and where she is very generous about sharing her art secrets.

Dear robinbird,

Yes! You would be perfect paper avalon fairie and I would be the flower petal fairie dancing all around your green branches!

BTW, Elsita shared which scissors she uses on her paper blog. I'm putting them on my Christmas wish list!

Dear Elsita,

The honor is mine! I have admired your work since I first discovered the blogosphere. Thank you for gracing the world with your artistry!

These are beautiful. I love the one with the flower petals and the illustration is wonderful too. I love the colors in it.

Dear Jemm,

I'm glad you like Elsita's art. She has other examples of flower petal fairies on her main blog. I used to know a little girl who used to make little fairy homes from leaves and twigs. They are simply charming.
