Who is ElsieBee

Established in August 1993, ElsieBee Originals started as a custom picture framing shop and a gallery for original local artwork that also offered classes. Owner Louise Bisso remains dedicated to the dream. Over the years, she has expanded the scope of our classes, our stable of artists, and the breadth of our framing services.

In 2003, our physical space was expanded and Sharon Bisso, Louise's daughter, moved home to help. Now, ElsieBee sells supplies for many different types of arts and Crafts:

◊ Oil painting

◊ Acrylic painting

◊ Watercolor Painting

◊ Ceramics

◊ Knitting

◊ Crocheting

◊ Herbs

◊ Spinning (we are a Ashford dealer)

◊ Needlepoint

◊ Cross stitch (including a full selection of DMC embroidery floss)

We are happy to order art supplies and craft supplies for you. We'll also ship them to you!

Our crafting socials have spawned many friendships. Come join the fun!

Our art supplies include paint for oil, watercolor, and acrylic. We also have drawing pencils, pastels, colored pencils, charcoal, and more. Brushes ranging from #12 filberts and flats to 20/0 for fine details are here. We have a variety of surfaces from papers and drawing pads to canvas boards and stretched canvases.
