Elissa Levy was born, lives and works in New York.  Her artwork combines newspaper, sewing and mixed media, manipulating imagery and bringing a new sense of life-blood to the common-place materials she works with.  The figures in her work are often brightly colored, like heat impressions that seem to be slowing burning or crumpling.

Levy attended the Rhode Island School of Design and received her BFA in Glass. She has had solo exhibitions at Stonefox Artspace, NY, The Living Room, San Francisco, and Brooklyn Fireproof, Inc, NY.  Levy has also worked a great deal in the Scottish Highlands.  In 2006, she was chosen to participate in the Glenfiddich Artist in Residence Programme in the Scottish Highlands, and she returned to the area in 2013 for a residency at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop. Her work is included in the Altoids® Curiously Strong Collection, which is part of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, NY, permanent collection and has been exhibited at spaces including the New Museum, and the Luckman Center Gallery, Los Angeles, Consolidated Works, Seattle, and Blue Star Arts Complex, San Antonio.
