Capturing life’s vignettes, my art is a butterfly net of vibrant colors, experiences, and emotions. I am a storyteller who philosophizes the world with poignancy and comic relief. Using the mediums of book art and music composition, I integrate these elements to invite a rich sensory experience of touch, vision, and sound.

Meet the artist

Elise Lerner is a Connecticut based book artist integrating vision, language and sound, which form the combination of her passions as an artist and songwriter. In book arts, she explores alternative forms of the codex and breaking the boundaries of what a book is and can be. Using materials such as acetate, wire mesh, machine embroidery and digital prints - often in combination, her work gravitates between two and three dimensions. Conceptually it addresses the intimate aspects of storytelling such as existential thoughts, body image, one’s place in the world - always from a female perspective and the struggles that accompany this. Again and again, Elise, also a lyricist and composer, marries music into her vision for her art, creating expansive depth to the experience.
