Elise Heather Loxley (Murphy)

Artist - Designer - Creative - Mother - Entrepreneur 

 

Elise is a self taught textile artist from Toowoomba, QLD. As she grow up in Highfields, she was known for constantly tinkering and making. Through this type of experimentation she found she had a particular love for the use of her hands as her main tool. She is wildly passionate about what she does and sharing her love of fibre art with others. Specializing in the art of macrame, weaving and stitching, Elise combines these skills to create unique artworks.
