Elisa Choi Ang

helping you sketch and paint using your senses

Elisa Choi Ang is a watercolor painter who enjoys painting nature and the places that people have traveled. She started sketching in pen and exploring watercolor in 2011. Her approach in painting reveals soft and bold strokes, merging of bright colors, and lots of splatter. She paints in a range of styles from abstract to painterly but enjoys painting in a loose way the most— without an initial sketch. 

When making art, Elisa strongly believes in the importance of fun and creativity and believes that making mistakes is part of the journey as one grows as an artist. Her desire is to teach and encourage the beginner artist to play and explore sketching in pen and painting in watercolor using one's senses. 

Elisa teaches drawing and painting to children. She loves to read the Bible, Christian ebooks and creative art books; discover new dishes to cook; go to nature trips with her husband to take photos of sunset and create sketches of people and places. She currently resides in Singapore with her husband. 

You can see more of her works at her website, Instagram and Facebook.
