Elsie is a rescued pit-mix who debuted in the fine arts world in 2011 at the age of 57 (in dog years). Her preferred medium is non-toxic washable tempera paint and cheese flavored treats. Elsie loves to work in shades of pink, representing the pink collar she has worn for the last five plus human years and her deeply personal history as a breast cancer survivor. Elsie lives with her human in Manhattan and enjoys sitting on people in her free time. She has asked that a portion of the proceeds from her work go to the Humane Society of New York, whose hospital provides excellent affordable medical care for animals.


Elsie can be commissioned to create artwork of varying sizes and colors. Each piece comes with a notecard containing the details of the piece and the artist's bio. To contact her human/manager about purchasing, showing, or getting involved with how this art can promote animal adoption and the positive image of pitbulls click HERE. Elsie is also available for "Meet the Artist" sessions and loves people of all ages.
