Elecia's Profile

About

Hello! Thanks for stopping in my little corner of Etsy. My name is Elecia and I will tell you a little about myself. I grew up in New England. I moved to Texas a few years ago and I LOVE it! I still have my New England roots, but fully embrace my Texas future :)

Growing up I always knew I wanted to be an artist. Well, I would say I wanted to be an artist, a veterinarian, and a dancer. I don't know WHAT I was thinking with the dancer thing - I have no rhythm... I still love animals and my daughter is proud to call her Mommy an "artist".

I recently saw the movie Eat, Pray, Love and in the movie it said "Follow your bliss". I truly believe in this. I was stuck in a job I hated in corporate America, quit when I got pregnant and then after my second was born I was yearning to do "more". I wanted to help the family financially as well as fill…

I recently saw the movie Eat, Pray, Love and in the movie it said "Follow your bliss". I truly believe in this. I was stuck in a job I hated in corporate America, quit when I got pregnant and then after my second was born I was yearning to do "more". I wanted to help the family financially as well as fill this void I had in my life. I thought about what I really loved doing - calligraphy and art. I didn't think I would make any money, but I gave it a shot and people responded!!

I love learning and creating new lettering styles and experimenting with different mediums and textures. My newesr venture is letterpress. I am SO pumped about this. I had been interested in it forver. I think because my major was in Textiles, I love the textile feeling of the cotton paper. You just have to touch it!! I took classes while I was still living in Rhode Island and took to it like a duck in water. I scoured around searching for just the right press. I found a Chandler & Price from the early 1900's and fell in love. Not soon after I moved to TEXAS!! Let's just say the movers were less than pleased when they got a look at her... Well, she is here now and I am so happy to have my home studio!


Thanks for reading!
