Creatively inclined from a young age, the work of Victorian artist Eleesa Howard is deeply reflective of her family, community and her environment. Born in Bankstown, New South Wales and raised in the Adelaide Hills, her childhood was coloured by family challenges yet creativity was always present and often used as an escape.
Eleesa’s creative process is intuitive, she works with paint, paper, printmaking and sculpture. Her works are typically the result of merging layers in some form and represent raw emotions, memories and elements of the human condition.
Eleesa has participated in a number of group and solo exhibitions, including Brunswick Street Gallery, Frankston Arts Centre and at Cook Street Collective.
