Elisa Sciorilli is a 40 year-old, self-taught artist specializing in acrylic painting. Her work can be found at www.ArtbyE.net She has been told she inherited her artistic ability from her highly talented mother (simply the best compliment she could ever receive). Her mother collected greeting cards and created drawings and paintings inspired by those illustrations and pictures. Ironically, Elisa learned this about her mother when she was in middle school and her mother discovered her sketching and painting pictures inspired by photos, magazines and calendars. Her mother was a gifted artist, crafter and seamstress, but most importantly, she was Elisa’s best friend.
Her mother unexpectedly passed away a month after she moved to the Charlotte area in 2013. Creating Art by E was one way to honor her mother’s memory by allowing the gift she passed on to Elisa to be shared with others.
