Elsa Mora.

I have been attempting this post for over a week now, but I am at a loss for words.
I stumbled across Elsa Mora on Etsy while I was doing some research on Papercuts and was floored when I started looking at her art, and then reading about her.
She makes the most beautiful characters out of flowers in her book Blossom Buddies.
The book was inspired by her autistic son whom she says keeps them growing and grounded as a family.

Elsa's soul radiates through her papercuts, scultpures, toys, jewelry, porcelains, illustrations, paintings, and yes--she even crafts clothing and handbags. 
It's all so beautiful and sweet that you know it can only be a reflection of who she is as a person.
And that person is truly remarkable and admirable in the most genuine way.

I encourage all of you to visit Elsa's Blogs.
She has one for everyday, one for personal style, and another all about papercuts.
Here you will learn all you need to know about Elsa and you will want to check in and see what she is up to everyday.

Currently Elsa is working on her two upcoming solo shows.
One in LA (where she lives) the other in Puerto Rico.

I hope she inspires you like she has me.
