I'm Elise Schaecher, the Elise behind Pieces of Elise's, and this is my husband, Jeff.

Jeff and Elise SchaecherPieces of Elise's began as a vehicle to share my artwork in an Etsy shop that I started in 2010, shortly after graduating from high school. I had taken as many art classes as I could my last two years of high school. After graduating, I wasn't ready to stop drawing, making, and sharing art. Since I was a little girl, I have enjoyed drawing people and sharing what I make with others. One of the best feelings is knowing that something that you made was able to brighten someone else's day.

The "paper people", families of hand-drawn and cut drawings that I made from ages 9-13, transformed into the articulated paper dolls that I now feature in my shop. I feel relaxed and happy drawing and I hope that I can share a bit of that happiness with you!
