In 2012, Elsa worked for Nancy Lorenz Studio in New York City. Nancy Lorenz is an abstract painter whose work incorporates techniques from traditional Asian craft. She uses materials such as mother-of-pearl inlay, lacquer and gold leaf in painterly gestures to create fine and decorative works of art. While working for Nancy, Elsa contributed her fine art craft skills to projects for clients as Chanel, Tiffany alongside private commissions.
