Elly Cohen




Elly Cohen builds amazing sculptures out of copper and other recycled materials. Her linocut illustrations were featured in Come and I Will Sing You, a book of traditional Newfoundland songs collected by Genevieve Lehr and Anita Best. For years, she did set design for Sheila’s Brush Theatre Troupe. She also paints and gardens. She brings her keen wit and remarkable ingenuity to everything she does. She lives in Newfoundland.

Elly created linocut illustrations for the letterpress version and first trade edition of Peg Bearskin, and for the 2008 Figgy Duff poster.
