“My Name Is Elza And I’m 25 Years Old. I Was Born And Raised In New Zealand, And I Now Live In Western Australia. Growing Up I Had An Artistic Father, So Art Was Always A Part Of My Life. I Wasn’t Serious About Art Until My Mother Got Me A Little Watercolor Set One Christmas And I Decided To Give It A Try. Instantly I Was Hooked And From Then On My Art Has Changed And Developed Over The Years By Continuous Practice. I Now Love Illustrating With Copic Markers.”
