About Elisa

Life, this moment, a vibrant adventure. I am blessed to be awake to to the magnificence of what’s around me, to be in harmony with my soul’s calling. 

I moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico three years ago from Mount Desert Island in Maine, my home for many years. What a blessing to experience the vast southwest sky! I create ceremony each morning in reverence for the stunning Earth and all she shares with us, and bless the seen and unseen for their roles in guiding us with Love.

I completed my master’s training in Painting From the Source with Aviva Gold in Ojai, California, have a master’s degree in museum/art education, studied with nationally-known intuitive painting teacher Michelle Cassou in Taos, New Mexico, was on the art faculty at Acadia Senior College. I authored and taught SpiritSong Intuitive Painting on Mount Desert Island and at the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland, Maine.

My art work is collected internationally.  

I look forward to meeting you.
