About the facilitator

Eliana is a visual artist and illustrator, dance teacher, performer based in Co. Sligo, Ireland. Starting in a small and cosy studio near Milan, Italy, then moving it to Dublin, Eliana is continuing her research work, interpreting and elaborating various commissions in Sligo, Ireland. Eliana started to study the relationship between emotions and shapes and colours, transcending rationality, and letting her watercolours guide her. The final result helped Eliana open new channels and inner visions, bonding personally to each commission and creating a communication bridge between the initial request and the final painting's uniqueness, with a strong emotional impact. Eliana moved to Ireland in 2008 to complete her project, and the word "Illustration" became a fusion between her inner spiritual and dreamlike world and the reality of the external world. Dreams are thus illustrated by Eliana, often using symbolic shapes and colours, adapting her style to different types of graphic work.
