About the Author

Elisa lives in the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico that is, with her husband and two of their three children. Elisa's love of color and creative imagination leads her to come up with many ideas based upon the same design. Before she has even completed one idea she has started three or four more. This leads to a never ending supply of projects begging to be finished. Curves really aren't that difficult and they lead to so many more ideas just waiting to be tried.
