My name is Elder (or EL). I’ve been an illustrator and painter all my life. My main interests have been acrylic and colored pencil, the 2d arts. I am a professional tattoo artist of 10yrs, and in 2020, I opened GRAY LILY TATTOO, my tattoo business! It’s been great! My main focus in art is nature and wildlife as well as people and culture and the connection between the two. Social activism has always intrigued me and is reflected in my inspirations and themes. Mood with colors is a peak interest when I lay down any foundation. Anytime I am creating, I am in high spirits!
