Drawing and painting have been Elisa’s passion her entire life. She enjoys painting with acrylics and working with pastels, but loves to experiment with many other mediums in order to obtain texture and definition. In that vein, she has designed mosaics, murals and commissioned paintings for a variety of clients. Painting faces and landscapes are what she prefers. She enjoys taking a subject then with her creative imagination uses bold vibrant colors to form a contemporary impressionistic representation of the subject without being literal.


Elisa is a graduate of Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida. She worked as a commercial artist in Chicago and Ohio for over 20 years. Later, she had the opportunities to exhibit her art around the midwest. She was raised in the South and moved back to her roots about 3 years ago.
