Art has saved my life.
It has taught me many things.
And it has given me so much more.
I have learned to see that am not only the artist but also the art.  

I have been doodling ever since my bowl cut days as a baby, I remember staying up late into the night sketching horses and getting lost outside during the day. I was out there running around half naked, barefoot, and alone with my family dogs.. Fast forward to now and I am still running around half naked, barefoot, and alone with my dogs, however, I ditched the bowl cut and shaved 1/3 of my head. Even did leopard spots in it for awhile too.  

Not much has changed about me. 
But I have evolved

I've never been afraid to be wild or to express who I wanted to be. 
To be one with my Native roots and to be comfortable with that edge I always felt deep down inside me.  
To be vulnerable and honest while also being the most resilient and intimidating one out there. 
To be gentle yet bold is a beautiful act that we should all experience and the only true way to achieve this is to become one with who we are.
To be one with the good and the bad within us and to understand that without both of them, we would not be who we are today.  

I am the creator of Native Edge Art

I've always been, 'Oh, that's Ella being Ella' vibe and now I am really showing you, Ella Being Ella.

Ever since I was in High School I used to play dress up with my best friend and we 'modeled'. I always admired the emotions photographs gave, a certain mood portrayed through poses but taken so differently amongst those who viewed it. A photo is a story without words that I love to tell and now I am sharing my personal stories and moods to you. Each photo is a raw glimpse of who I am deep down.

This is NATIVE EDGE
This is me to the world. 
This is my art. 
(Ella Anne Kociuba) 

Some random things about me:
  • I wiggle and giggle just about everywhere I go. 
  • Swedish fish are my favorite candy. 
  • I stopped bulimia by returning to drawing. (I was anorexic then bulimic from 2011-2016. I opened up in 2014 and quit my fitness career in order to get better by 2015. I started drawing more consistently in 2017.) 
  • I've had six concussions. 
  • My first sport growing up was Endurance Riding, which is long distance horse racing held on National Parks or private ranches (I did 25 and 50 mile courses).
  • I don't know when I started drawing but it was probably when I was finally able to hold a pencil but I used to only draw horses and horses only. 
  • I have always been obsessed with body modification- tattoos and piercings specifically. 
  • I am a self-taught artist, I did go to college for one art course but it was basically HS level. 
  • My first sentence was, "I'll bite you."
  • I was signed to compete and fully sponsored in obstacle and multi-day races by the time I was 18 years old.
  • Yes, I had a very thick bowl cut growing up.
  • 1/3 of my head is shaved now.. I shaved it back in 2011. 
  • I am the baby of four and 1/4 Cherokee Indian. 
  • I am connected by metal. My spine and sacrum are attached by four metal rods and six screws and the lumbar is partially fused, L4 and L5.  
  • I am the youngest female to win and go pro for OCR's in Spartan Race (2012).
  • I am a Massage Therapist. 
  • I own two female dogs. A 50 pound Staffordshire Terrier and a 100 pound Doberman. They are my world.  
  • I'm terrified of caterpillars, clowns, and needles. 
  • I don't like to heat anything up ending in the numbers 0 or 5..
