The Blue Strawberry is a creative website about art and illustration.
My name is Elisa Guietti and I am a visual artist based in Edinburgh. I studied Fine Arts in my hometown of Turin, and Children Illustrations in London. I’m interested in art for kids, simple and colorful, as well as more complicated subjects dealing with the social and cultural environment. Normally I work with acrylics, soft pastels, and digital.
I believe that art is an invaluable instrument of expression and communication that can really make a difference in people’s lives. I do private and public commissions and collaborate with several organisations in the delivery of art activities for children and vulnerable adults. Past and recent collaborations include Wild in Art, Leonard Cheshire Disability, Roshni, and The Alma Project.
I enjoy creating illustrations for children and designing inspiring wall murals for different locations. Also, I am interested in community art, and in developing projects and activities that can encourage people to connect with their creative side.
I am a member of the PVG Scheme and of the Scottish Artists Union and have a full Public Liability Insurance.
