Art Lovers,

Welcome to my artsy world. My creativity allows me freedom that is indescribable. I'm inspired by the beauty I see in simple things - colors, textures, patterns and forms. I love using mirrors in my pieces to convey that my art is a reflection of me. There have been recurring themes in my life that exemplifies who I am: empowerment, expression, insight, inspiration, passion, humanitarian.

I hope you enjoy my work, as much as I enjoy creating it!

Creatively yours,

Artista Elisabet


Artista Elisabet, a talented artist born in Germany to Spaniard immigrants, currently resides in Houston, Texas. She is a retired professional flamenco dancer who toured extensively throughout Europe before moving to the United States. With a bicultural identity, her diverse cultural background brings a unique perspective to Houston's art community. Artistically talented for as long as her parents can recall, they noticed she had an immediate attraction to shapes, textures and color and encouraged her to begin drawing as a young child. Artista Elisabet finds color absolutely invigorating and believes in the "power of color". Matched with an exploratory spirit, her enchantment with color is reflected in her work as a contemporary fusion of an eclectic, abstract and kaleidoscopic world. She concentrates on delivering artistic expressions such as paintings, sculptures, life and belly castings (Elly Belly) and handicrafts on various media including canvas, wood and recycled materials. Kind hearted and strongly believes in donating her gift to benefit others; Artista Elisabet has significantly contributed her time and artwork through fundraising.

As a humanitarian, Artista Elisabet is making it her life goal to raise awareness for breast cancer. Her vision is to celebrate, empower, and inspire breast cancer survivors through life casting as a form of hope. Her campaign "I CAST BECAUSE I CARE" encourages all women to get screened.
She also, has a soft spot for children and her relationship with a friend's son lead her to become heavily involved with the Down Syndrome Association of Houston (DSAH). She redesigned the DSAH logo and leads therapeutic art classes with the DSAH children and was awarded as Artist of the Year 2011. Additionally, her artwork and time has benefited: the American Heart Association, the Barbara Jordan Foundation, Hashoo Foundation, Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Periwinkle Foundation, Texas Children's Cancer Hospital, Tahirih Justice Center, Pink Door Non-profit Organization, and a host of other fundraisers.

Artista Elisabet believes there's an artist in everyone and is always looking to inspire and empower others to discover their own creativity. She enjoys luring the inner creativity out of the participants in her art workshops and classes.
