ELISE DEGARMO

IMG_7857.JPG

Elise DeGarmo is a storyteller, seduced by the idea that visual art is legible to almost everyone. Raised in the south, in the state of lovers, she believes that nature is the ultimate artist. Environmental protection plays a big role in her life, as her lifestyle is driven by compassionate action towards animals and their habitat. Juxtapozed to her environmental aspirations, her work is an abstract, fractured review of consumerism. A color enthusiast she works in mainly bright colors mimicking the artificiality of the contemporary west.
