Elisa’s paintings merge the outside with what is felt inside, mixing external images with her feelings, dreams and memories. Most recently her paintings are inspired by the landscapes of Northern England and Scotland, although the influence of her Mediterranean colours is still visible in her palette. Elisa started painting as a child, copying her mother during those scorching summers in Spain. Majoring in Law, she continued to paint, attending various Spanish art schools while maintaining her self-taught approach. At University she was submerged in Zen meditation and after graduating, continued to study the mind in different ways through Psychology and Yoga. This interest is ever present in her paintings. To paint is Elisa’s inner need to look for balance and harmony both inside her and the picture. Her contemplative approach within nature and herself remains an important source of inspiration.

“I try to paint the open space of being conscious, but although I remain caught within concepts, painting is my way of breaking free from that confusion, being conscious of what fills space without becoming it.”

Her creative process is continually developing, letting the painting talk to her, listening and trying not to interfere too much while searching for the point that is just in balance between the painting and herself. Her wish is that those that can look at her paintings can experience, at least a small piece of this enjoyment.
