Elise Beattie Artist Bio:
Elise Meredith Beattie was born and educated in New York City. Beattie is a nationally recognized award winning artist & instructor.

Elise's art is influenced by her imagination, but in her work she likes to step beyond the reality of what is seen preferring to paint her feelings. The artist call this process: painting with her mind’s eye. Beattie's goal is to allow her emotions to mix with inspiration and create a fusion of representation and abstraction. Using numerous layers of poured watercolor and acrylics she creates cloaks of mystery; continuously redirecting her interpretation of reality. Eventually Beattie's feelings, pours and the patterns created, transform her imagination to become a painting inspired by passion’s gift.
