Hey! I’m Elyse.

I’m a full-time law student at Duke University and a part-time artist. I started my business when I was 18 and I’ve been doing my best to grow it ever since. I’m extremely grateful for the success I’ve had with this business. I can remember when I was excited to get my 100th sale on Etsy, and only a year later I have made over 1,000 sales. It has been a crazy journey with a lot of challenges, but building this business has truly been the most rewarding experience of my life. Currently, I sell here on my website, on Etsy, and I license my work to be sold in stores like Home Goods and World Market. Here are a few fun facts about me:

-My favorite fiction book is All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and my favorite non fiction book is The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker 
-My favorite TV show ever is Parks and Rec because one, it is SO wholesome and funny, and two, I love seeing people passionate about their jobs, I really aspire to one day be as passionate about my job as Leslie Knope is about hers
-Painting really is my true love but I am pretty crafty in other ways; I also enjoy baking (especially chocolate chip cookies), sewing & quilting, bullet journaling, and knitting!

Do we have anything in common? Let me know! You can find me on Instagram @elysebreannedesign—shoot me a DM, I’d love to get to know you!
