Elyse Jung-Vrymoed is a Los Angeles based artist and teacher. She is a practitioner of the mantra “Yes, and…”
A student of yoga to some degree since her early teens, she is a great believer in its restorative value as part of a holistic approach to mental and physical health. In her 10 year work as a teacher of young children she has sought to de-stigmatize discussions around mental health in the arts while passing on a joyful passion for the subject. As an artist, though her subjects remain thoroughly adult, they are influenced by the ridiculous and playful spirit of her students. Interested in the ever poignant human topics of sex, myth and mortality; her artwork playfully points at life’s big juicy questions.
