Elsha Taya Travis

Elsha Taya Travis (formerly Elsha Bohnert) creates art and poems from wandering around and reimagining things lost, forgotten and trashed. Born in Indonesia before World War II from Dutch-Indonesian parents, she came to the US via The Netherlands as a refugee. Hawaii is the closest she comes to heaven on earth.

Her breathtaking imagery surprises again and again. Norma W. Gorst, author of At the Edge of Speech
