Episode 10 – Elisa Colangeli

Elisa is from Italy and she is a wife, mother of two boys and an environmental engineer working full time in a regional environmental protection agency.
.
She spent most of her life studying, working and taking care of the family, and for a long time she pulled apart her passion for art because of the lack of time and difficulties in managing an already busy daily routine.
.
Three years ago she realized that it was the time to do something for herself, so she started dedicating time to make art systematically, learning to use different media such as charcoal, acrylic and oil paints.
.
Her inspiration comes from people, especially women, and she is interested in interpreting and understanding their inner world made of dreams, fears, hope, rebirth.
.
Being aware, on the basis of her direct experience, that women need to discover themselves and to be seen authentically, beyond stereotypes and labels, Elisa aims to help them to strengthen their identity.
.
By her figurative paintings, set halfway between realism and expressivity, she invites women to be proud of their past, enjoy the present and face the future with joy. A poem, a book, a sentence on a newspaper, a chat with a friend, can all offer Elisa hints on new concepts and ideas for future paintings.
