About Elise


Elise Wehle is an artist based in Orem,UT. She earned a BFA in Studio Visual Arts from Brigham Young University.

Elise explains the work by saying, “I make the art I do to pull me away from the increasingly digital world that surrounds me. Every day I spend so much time in front of a glowing screen that sometimes I forget I possess five bodily senses and not just one or two. Making art makes me conscious of my hands again, and all of my work requires time-intensive, redundant movements that remind me that not everything is as instantaneous as a click of a mouse. By weaving together paper, cutting lines, and folding shapes, I manipulate drawings, photos, and prints to create new landscapes for me to explore.”

"Some of the work on Ms Wehle's site is intensely interesting, some is passively interesting, some is noteworthy and some is redundantly boring. New York will love it."

"I can't think of a better reason to create art."
