Drawing and painting have been Elisa's passion her entire life. She enjoys painting with acrylics and working with pastels, but she loves to experiment with many other mediums in order to obtain texture and definition. In that vein, she has designed mosaic murals and commissioned paintings for a variety of clients. Painting faces and landscapes is her preference. Elisa enjoys using her creative imagination and bold vibrant colors to transform a subject into a contemporary, impressionistic representation without being literal.
Elisa is a graduate of Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida. She worked in Chicago and Ohio as a commercial artist. Later, she had opportunities to exhibit her art around the Midwest. She was raised in the South and has moved back to her roots.
