My name is Elisa Amari, I am a New Jersey native who now calls South Florida my home. As a devoted full-time mixed media artist, my focus lies in creating figurative and abstract artwork. Art has been an integral part of my life since a young age, where I found solace and joy in drawing and painting.

While my parents encouraged me to pursue a more "sensible" career, I couldn't resist the pull of the art world. Although I followed their advice and attended community college without pursuing art, my passion continued to burn within me. Over the course of 16 years, I dedicated myself to working in the corporate environment of the New Jersey State Judiciary, all the while nurturing a growing desire for artistic expression.

Initially, I painted portraits and florals purely for personal enjoyment and as gifts for friends and family. However, my artistic flair extended beyond conventional canvases, as I began incorporating unique artistic touches into hand-painted furniture pieces. Balancing the demands of my full-time corporate job, I made a pivotal decision in 2019 to embark on an art career. Encouraged by my husband's recognition of my talent, I took the leap and began selling my hand-painted furniture and artworks.

In the summer of 2022, my family and I embarked on an exciting new chapter by selling our New Jersey home and embracing the vibrant art scene of South Florida. This change allowed me to explore new opportunities and showcase my artwork in various exhibitions throughout New Jersey and Florida. Notably, my piece titled "Not Fragile Like a Flower, Fragile like a Bomb" received an Honorable Mention at the prestigious Wallisch Homestead Art Show. Additionally, I had the privilege of having my work selected for inclusion in the esteemed "Icons" exhibition hosted by Las Laguna.

Driven by unwavering dedication and a continuous pursuit of excellence, I persistently refine my craft, striving to establish a lifelong career in the art world. My artistic journey serves as a testament to the transformative power of following one's creative calling, even when the path may not initially seem clear. As I continue to create, my ultimate aspiration is to leave a lasting impact on the art world, inspiring others through my unique vision and unwavering passion.
