Elisa was born in Bologna in 1989 but grew up in the countryside surrounding the city, together with her very unique mate, her little cat Minù. Since she was young, she’s loved drawing and inventing stories anytime and anywhere. Her mum always said she was born holding a pencil in her hand. She always keeps her notebook and pen handy when she goes around, ready to write down whatever comes to mind.
Her passion drove her to the Artistic high school of Bologna and then to the Academy of Fine Arts where passion merged up with drawing techniques in a very passionate environment. Still keeping Bologna in her heart, she now lives in Milan working as a children book's illustrator, surrounded by a laptop, much software, graphic pens... her husband and her son, but still with many, many sheets of paper and colours for always writing and drawing new stories.
