well, hello there.

I’m Elsa, a UX/UI designer, textiles enthusiast, and hand lettering

artist seeking to integrate simple beauty and organization into

everyday surroundings and experiences.

In my free time, I'm often curled up with a book, baking a new dessert for friends, imagining my future flower garden, or watching period dramas.
