Creative Living with Jamie (episode 269): Interview with Elly MacKay
What frees you up to play with your art? How do you let go of work you’ve created? What do you wish someone had told you? These are just a few of the things visual artist Elly MacKay and I chat about as she shares her journey into become a magical world maker!
Elly works from the attic of her old Victorian house in Owen Sound, Canada where she lives with her husband and children. She creates unique images through using layers of paper, light and photography. Elly attended the Nova Scotia College of Art for printmaking but also had an informal education in paper arts by visiting members of the Movable Book Society by train when she was a teen. She now creates picture books and illustrates covers for novels.
