Elly Mackay is one of my favorite artists. She lives and works in Owen Sound in Ontario, Canada. She creates breathtakingly beautiful, fanciful, storybook-like Yupo paper works on a small scale. Then, in a small stage setting, or ‘theater’, she photographs the drawings to create the finished product. The end result is akin to a picture out of the most beautiful, timeless storybook imaginable. She is currently working on children’s books.
