Hi! My name’s Elise and I’m an illustrator and animator based out of northern New Jersey. I graduated from Montclair State University where I earned a BFA in Illustration/Animation and a minor in Speech Pathology & Audiology.

I have recently made the transition from traditional ink to digital illustration, but I definitely still mess around with traditional media and would love the opportunity to hone in more of those skills! I love working with tons of textures, especially halftones (my ultimate fave), to give my work a vintage vibe.

I have recently been featured in Maker's Magazine Issue 4: Women, and the Pascack Art Association's Fourth Annual Juried Tri-State Art Show,  hosted at the Ridgewood Art Institute in Ridgewood, New Jersey.

I am always open for commissions and you can contact me at and follow me on Instagram at @elisemghell.
