hello! i'm elise and i started elisemade with the desire to get everyone excited about knits! 

i studied studio art at the university of washington in seattle and never saw a problem with the rain. coming from a long line of talented and creative makers, i am fascinated by handmade "craft" traditionally associated with women and inspired by the artists and makers that continue to push the boundaries between craft and fine art.

i currently live and work in los angeles with my husband and our gangsta pekingese, larry lopez.

i love to create custom art and knits! contact me at if you're interested in collaborating.
