Elyssa is an illustrator living and working in London.  Much of Elyssa's work is influenced by her strong connections with Japan and her love of Japanese illustration.  She also endeavours to make work that will instigate social change and question the cultural climate in the UK.  She longs to see the Britain become a place where oppressed minorities are empowered and heard and this is often a motivating factor in the work she undertakes.  Elyssa is currently working as a freelance illustrator when not at her day job working as an Education and Wellbeing Specialist in sexual health.

Clients include: Daikon*, Gal-dem, NHS, The University of Cambridge, University College London, The University of Reading, Arcee, Serlo, F Come, The Rising Network, Saomao, and Rajana (Cambodia) as well as various private commissions.
