Elise began her journey to recognition and acclaim, proving that with talent and determination, anything is possible.
In 2011, Elise Swopes (eh - L EE S Sw - O - pes ) joined Instagram, never imagining her power to inspire and generate a global brand. Since then, the self-taught artist transformed into a full-fledged career professional. She created NFTs with RollingStone and partnered with technology companies like Apple. In New York, she developed her artistry, taking drone photos of the city and turning them into something from another world. Her signature giraffe brings whimsy to unexpected settings. She uses her entrepreneurial skills, co-founding Night On The Yard, a marketplace dedicated to ending the hidden impact of incarceration, and her web3 impact agency, Sunrise Art Club. However, her contributions extend beyond her professional achievements. Swopes has been actively involved in community work, particularly with Chicago's Boys and Girls Club. She has developed workshops and curriculums for the club, equipping young artists and entrepreneurs with the skills they need to succeed. Through free tutorials and one-on-one mentoring, she continues to inspire and support the next generation of creatives. As an advocate for mental health, she's shared her story through various platforms. She has shared her personal journey on multiple platforms, including a TEDx Talk, shedding light on the importance of mental well-being.
