— Starry Night says “Thank you, Vincent”. It’s painted thinking about van Gogh. I read when I was young his letters to Theo, his brother. I feel I can relate so much to what he went through and his passion and “need” to paint. I loved his work in the museum in Amsterdam that I saw also in my youth. I saw one of his “Starry Night” paintings in November 2019 in Paris and I must say it brought tears to my eyes. Also the song “Starry Night Vincent” by Don Mac Lean moves me a lot. Lots of emotions in this work!
— While working on "Cruising South" I was feeling a little under the weather and painting is my best solace. I put the opera out loud and I evade into brighter worlds. This painting with its colours particularly managed to bring me back serenity and a happier mood.
Born in Barcelona, after studying at the Lycée Français, Elisa attended the University in Geneva. After graduating from the School of Interpreters and the University Institute of European Studies, she decided to stay in Switzerland. Since 2017 she lives in Marbella, Spain. Artistic since childhood, she became a painter and studied several techniques with different teachers: watercolour, drawing, sketching, oil painting and acrylic. Her passion for painting has encouraged her to devote herself fully to researching, deepening and experimenting to optimize her style. Her paintings, while remaining very personal, reflect a constant evolution that stems from a permanent desire to go further and further. Her paintings show a gradual simplification either in the figurative or in the abstract, but with an unmistakable search for light.
Her work has been in exhibits all over the world as well as in the Nantong Museum, first museum of China, and at the United Nations in Geneva.
