Elise Barnard is a self taught artist, based in Gurnard, Isle of Wight, with links to Oxfordshire. She graduated with a degree in Metallurgy and Materials Science from Cambridge University, worked as a materials engineer in the aerospace industry for 26 years until she left in 2015 to become a full time artist. She uses pen and watercolour to paint bright vibrant landscapes and detailed pet portraits. Elise believes that beautiful images need not stay in a picture frame but can be enjoyed on tote bags and mugs. She can print any image in this website onto mugs, bags, coasters, placemats and other items, in her Isle of Wight and Oxfordshire studios.
