I used to work at The Perth Mint producing illustrations for commemorative coins and packaging before going freelance. During my employment there, I had the joy of illustrating the Australian Bush Babies series which proved to be a huge success, selling out each coin’s allocation. The Perth Mint later commissioned me to do a second series of five adorable animals for Australian Bush Babies series II.

We chose to use Elise as an artist for our labels because of the care and attention to detail that she puts into every piece of artwork. We found Elise easy to work with and prompt with changes and feed back regarding the artwork in progress.  We loved how she was able to bring the label ideas to life and add the finishing touches that make an ordinary label extraordinary. Our experience with her was very professional and we would defiantly recommend Elise to another business or individual.
