Elisa Cossey was born to be an artist. Looking back at her childhood she cannot remember a time in which she was not creating something. As a child it was called “play.” As a young adult it became “arts and crafts.” Today, Elisa’s eye for beauty and love for creativity has elevated her craft to that of “artisan.”
