Wednesday Words – Elisa Choi

Today I am giving over Wednesday Words to my friend, Elisa Choi. Elisa is a painter and earlier on this year collaborated with me to produce a beautiful front cover for my Newsletter.
Elisa started drawing when she was a child and began to explore painting in 2011. She paints the daily things in life, particularly nature. She is strongly drawn to strong colors, light and shadow, old and new.
The ephemeral beauty of everything moves Elisa to recreate it. Painting rekindles her senses, like seeing something for the first time. To be able to share this experience with others is humbling. Her biggest influences are the people who encourage her to keep going, and she admires the work of Jean Haines, Trevor Waugh and Joseph Stoddard. The messages she feels she is trying to get across to her audience are a mixture of nostalgia, hope, love, peace, happiness and most of all to let other people know about Jesus Christ.
Elisa paints mostly in watercolor allowing the brush to dance and the paint to blend and flow freely. She also paints in acrylics. When she’s not painting, she reads the Bible, Christian e-books and a few creative books, listens to pod-casts, brainstorms concepts to work for business, makes to do lists and sketches. When she hits a “dry spot” she walks with nature, does her chores and thinks of ideas. She describes herself as quiet, empathic, a listener, a planner and prudent.
Please visit her website at Harmony Thoughts to view her incredible paintings.
