hi! my name is elise and i am the owner, designer, and maker behind elisemade. you could say i have yarn in my blood. knowing me means inevitably falling into conversations about knitting. i’m sorry, i promise i do occasionally think about other things :) i currently live in los angeles with my husband and our dog larry.
i’ve always been happiest when i’m being creative, whether as a young girl with a huge bucket of crayons or drawing and painting through middle and high school; i just always knew i wanted to be an artist. i graduated from the university of washington school of art with a focus on textiles and surface design, and since then i feel like i’ve come back to my roots. i come from a long line of incredibly talented artists and makers, most influentially, my aunt and my mom, both incredible seamstresses and knitters. coming from this tradition, i place a high value…
