Caroline Elsner is a Grand Rapids based illustrator and artist with a BFA in Illustration from Grand Valley State University. She is deeply inspired by nature and old fairy tale books. Her work focuses on humankind’s connection with nature and the environment- and how that relationship has changed over time. Her time spent in nature being feral, finding rare plants, animals, and disappearing glaciers all inform her works and their somewhat wistful, dark and beautiful themes.
