About the Artist

dog/cat/snake mom - video game dork - peace loving hippie - she/they

My name is Elizabeth Kosto, but please call me Ellie or Moose!

I came to the desert nearly 10 years ago from Anchorage Alaska; I spent half of my life up North in the last frontier until the military shipped our small air force  family to this dry wasteland. since a good chunk of my childhood was spent raised far north, I grew an obsession with moose and made that my alias! I've been in the Dirty T for nearly a decade, although it is not Alaska, this is home and I love the community and culture that currently surrounds me.

Art has been a passion of mine since I was a child, having cool tattooed parents made me fall in love with body modifications as a whole. I started investing more time and energy in learning about tattoos and the industry around 2014. Driven hard, I was able to find myself in sublime tattoo working with the owner and artists while a senior in high school. After being an apprentice for 2 years, I was able to start my career as an artist in 2017. I entered this industry fairly young at the ripe age of 18; I am always seeking on ways to improve and be the drive to change this once "taboo" industry to a welcoming and progressive environment.

my involvement with art has always been a part of my life; throughout my teenage years I have been doing commission work and went through a new sketchbook a week. art is a passion and a drive for me- to work as an artist now is so beyond me still and I can't wait to see where it will take me.  

Other than art, I have so many other hobbies that I love; cosplay, video games, nature, and overall learning about the world around me. If we ever meet we'll probably find something fun to talk about for hours! 

I'm thrilled you have found interest in my work/working with me - I am looking forward to working with you!
