Fine Art • Mixed Media

Growing up I learned sewing, baking, and decorating cakes, creating works of art with icing, and making all kinds of crafts. I taught craft classes through Community Education, been on committees with all sorts of organizations, where creativty and leadership was involved, in church, school, and community. I have always loved the Alphabet, letters, and the love of words to express myself. I have been a Calligrapher since the early 1980’s and member of the Colleagues of Calligraphy, Minneapolis. Our Guild was instrumental in helping with the origin of the St. John’s Bible.

Singer-songwriter and author Elisa Korenne writes intimately introspective songs and prose about her pathways, and the pathways of fringe figures in history. What binds these disparate life journeys is a profound and poetic sensitivity for the human condition. “My work is about cultivating empathy and opening minds and hearts,” Elisa says.
