LaWhimsy is an extension of me and my particular journey in this life and I want to extend a hand of friendship, encouragement, and solidarity to those who are on their own paths, seeking out the little, everyday joys and self love they know they are worthy of.

A Piece of Me Digital Art Collage by Ella Patrice via LaWhimsy About Me
Sunniest of Salutations! I’m Ella Patrice and I’m the artsy, curious, bookish, weird, whimsical, bohemian human behind LaWhimsy.
​I’m an Artist and I specialize in Graphic Design, Collage and Digital Collage Art (each image on this page is a Digital Art Collage of mine), Art Doll Design, and I’m currently expanding into Surface Pattern Design. I’m also a forever student who is constantly delving into various topics in history, the arts, and culture.
I’m Autistic and have ADHD (both diagnosed in adulthood, sigh) and I tend to navigate the world around me and within me in a rather unique, off-beat kind of way. I live to spread optimism and a bit of sparkle wherever I go and I’ve always enjoyed sharing and exploring all of the easily overlooked joys and wonders of everyday life.
A few random facts about me:
  • I’m an incredibly gentle, highly sensitive spirit.
  • I’m a Pisces Sun, a Leo Moon, and a Leo Rising.
  • I can and do easily wax poetic.
  • I absolutely adore horror movies – things like The Conjuring franchise, anything Hammer Horror, Suspiria, classic Italian horror, etc.
  • I embrace, and never apologize for, my femininity.
  • I love to hug trees and talk to plants and animals and inanimate objects.
  • I randomly gather leaves, sticks, rocks, etc when I go on walks.
  • History and Historical Fiction can make me really emotional sometimes.
  • I am super proud to be an Intellectual Badass!
