Since 2014 Elyse has drawn live at London Fashion Week and Fashion Scout shows of renowned designers and collaborated with high profile brands such as Selfridges, Samsung and Westfield. Due to her contemporary approach to fashion illustration, she is used as an artist reference at Central Saint Martins, a Graduate Fashion Week Judge for the fashion illustration award, and a visiting lecturer at the Manchester School of Art, Manchester Fashion Institute and University for the Creative Arts. 


Elyse's style has always offered a refreshing contemporary take on fashion illustration. In a niche industry that has remained dormant in black inks and watercolours for many years, Elyse's illustration style is raw, expressive and colourful.  She is deeply connected to imagination and the diverse narratives within fashion. Her style embodies a teenage dream of the fashion world and applies it to any surface or context.

Elyse's main illustration services are live events and brand partnerships.  She also offers design work for public installations and hosts energetic workshops. Her collection of hand drawn artworks and exclusive, limited edition prints are available for exhibitions and  to purchase.
