A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Elle graduated from MC College in 2010, studying Fashion Design & Apparel Production. After freelancing for different designers, as well as building her own brand, Elle had a change in circumstance; leading her down a spiritual path that eventually found her moving to San Antonio, Texas. Combining what she learned in the design industry with her passion to write, Elle embarked on this project to continue to create, albeit through a different artistic medium.  With nothing more than a song in her heart and the determination to see it brought to life, she learned as much as she could about music and its production. After a long journey, Elle presents her debut book and song, "The Beauty of Life: 24 Gifts and a Song".
