My name is Elise Mahan and I am a freelance artist and educator. This website is devoted to all of my artistic and educational passions.
You can find my personal artist portfolio, purchase paintings, cards and prints on my etsy shop, or read my new book, Celestial Watercolor, which is a guide to painting starry landscapes and constellations, as well as a text on astrology and the lunar phases, published by Quarto Knows.
I have just begun a Blog which is dedicated to creating art and nature based projects for children of all ages, but at the moment it is dedicated mostly to toddler based art projects. These art projects are inspired by my creative and curious son, Miles Asher Pugh, who lives for art, nature, and books. He is my muse and many of the projects featured are ones we do on a weekly basis.
