SHOP Featured Portraits
These are original minimalist portraits by artist Elissa Barber - no reproductions will be made. 8 in 10 drawings will have a second portrait on the back (Elissa often does two before selecting and signing a side) which only further authenticates the artwork.
These portraits exemplify beauty in simplicity through the use of a single, continuous line. No two are exactly the same. They are at once elegant and feminine, strong and bold.

When people ask me how I’m doing it all it’s still tough to answer. I’m not doing it all. I’m doing a few things to the best of my ability.
Literally and figuratively moving on and what this means for me and my family.
Trying to decide what the heck to do with my (art) life hasn;t always been easy for me.
Today I’m exhausted. Being an artist is incredible and I’m not trying to complain - I get to do what I love every day. That said it is also extremely hard work. This is not my hobby, I spent five years in school and my entire life training. Now I'm a mother to a seven month old daughter and feel so incredibly driven to make a life and not just a living. You might look at these simplistic images I choose to make and wonder why, of all the artwork I could spend my time making, why this?
