Interested in drawing and colors from when she was a child Elisa discovered the oil painting at the age of 17. Starting from the reproduction of impressionism canvas, she moved to abstract paintings after an important loss, but keeping an impressionist approach and experimenting art on different materials, mainly recycled. 

In 2019 she founded the InMedium Impressionism, a new kind of Art centered on the other person’s emotions and experience. “InMedium” means to be the tool by which to transport some-one else’s feelings an history into a painting, to stop them in an infinte time, “Impressionism” because of the use of its techniques with a modern approach.
