Elena Makansi

I am a Tucson-based illustrator and visual artist with roots in the Midwest and a deep reverence for the natural world.

I am inspired by the mysterious and wondrous natural world. Magic can be found all around us and within us if we stop to observe, listen, and create space. I work this magic within my creative practice.
