I’m Elliespaper, also known as Elisa Canaglia.
I am a paper illustrator, bookworm and fantasy lover based in Vicenza, Italy.
I have always been attracted to the creative process in all of its aspects: I started drawing, crafting and experimenting when I was little and I haven’t stopped since!
I attended the S. Bertilla Boscardin High School of Arts in Vicenza where I studied subjects like Painting, Sculpture and Architecture with a traditional approach to visual arts.
Before graduating I also took a one year Comics course at a private school where I discovered new authors, techniques and characters that opened the door on the sparkly world of the Ninth Art.
I proceeded to the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, Italy, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Comics and Illustration.
During those years I started experimenting with collage and block-printing while developing my own personal style.
I currently work as a freelance illustrator: creating pieces for companies and private clients, crafting personal projects and collaborating professionally with the Studio Arti Visive.
I want to give voice to the imagination, making emotions come alive on paper, and sprinkle your everyday life with a dash of magic.
