Elissa Anthony

~ Landscape Artist Working in Oils, Acrylics and Clay

Born in 1953 in Toronto, Ontario, Elissa grew up in North Vancouver. She then studied Graphic Art at George Brown College.

She worked as a graphic artist for many yrs. in Toronto, until taking a position as a Sales Manager for Display Arts of Toronto.

This job was fulfilling on many levels. She was able to be a liaison and convey ideas between the artists creating the work and the corporations who were buying it. She found this very rewarding and this experience became the corner stone for eventually having her own art based business.

In 1991 she moved to England where she was exposed to the galleries and museums of Europe. She enthusiastically began taking fine art courses at the MAC in Birmingham, West Midlands, England.

Her move to Vancouver Island proved inspirational and she has been painting in oils ever since. One of her students claimed,  “We think about art, but Elissa IS art.” Her life has become a whirlwind of creativity ~ oil painting, pottery, jewellery making, and teaching art consume her days.

Often her work takes on a slightly native/spiritual slant which is of no surprise considering Elissa is ¼ Mohawk. She is consciously pursuing her native spirituality.

Her work is collected by people across Canada and she shows in several galleries on Vancouver Island.
