Tuesday's Artist: Elsa Mora

In order to keep my creative tank chugging along I like to fill it with all sorts of visual fuel. This "Tuesday's Artist" thing is my way of sharing some of the artists that inspire and delight me. I asked them to do a finish-this-sentence sort of mini-interview so we might get to know them a little better.
This week's spotlight is shining on Elsa Mora.
Born and raised in Cuba, Elsa now lives and works in LA. I especially enjoy her fearless experimentation in a multitude of media! I also love how she incorporates a healthy dose of symbolism, myth, and folklore into much of her work.

If I wasn't an artist maybe I'd be a patient in a mental hospital obsessed with my arts and craft therapy :)

Today, I'm listening to what my son is trying to tell me without words (he's autistic and needs me to be able to listen beyond his words).

The Secret

I'm really good at being on time, I'm never late.

I'd like to be better at sports (specially swimming).

When I was a kid I was like a little grown up inside and very smiley and friendly on the outside.

I hate it when. . . So far I don't hate anything. But I get upset about any kind of injustice.

My workspace is my little planet.

Right now, I'm really into answering these questions.

I hope that my art keeps helping me stay happy and sane :)
