Bianca Elise is a spirited figurative artist from North Florida with over 15 years of experience and works primarily in oils and acrylics. Key themes in Elise’s works include adornment and embellishment of the female form and the effect of light and shadow on her subject’s skin.
To achieve this Elise often includes gold leaf, crystals, and hand milled glitters into her works, as their reflective properties add life, light and
movement. The result is a strong balance of reflection, light and shadows in her works.
Elise’s desire to give back motivates her to participate in several philanthropy, arts, and charity events. Some of which include: The St. Baldrick’s Foundation for Childhood Cancer, The Art of Skateboarding: benefiting The Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, ART CONSPIRACY 5-8, 10, Toast to Life in Benefit of the Resource Center of Dallas, Cloud 9 Charities Annual Art Gala, Valiant Hearts Annual Gala, and most recently The 5 x 5 show in support of North Texas’ Missing & Exploited Children.
Elise was formally trained in a rigorous 4 year academic program at critically acclaimed Douglas Anderson School of the Arts (DASOTA) in Jacksonville. Upon completion Elise was awarded a full Art Talent Scholarship to Florida State College’s Fine Art’s program.
She has produced both small and large works for private art collectors throughout the US and Canada.
Elise’s love of all things big and shiny motivated her to move to Dallas where she is currently pursuing an additional career as nurse in the field of dermatology.
