My name is Francesca Elisia, and I’m an artist and creative transformation coach. I started the Creative Spirit Co. to help people reach their creative potential.
I offer coaching around unlocking creativity, building creative confidence, and developing and improving creative processes.
In my courses, I make space for participants to tap into their unique creative expression and find strategies to activate their creative energy. I’m excited to share my first online course, How to Build and Keep Creative Habits.
Painting and drawing are two of my passions. I make art to better understand and connect with the world around me. I paint and draw to explore my imagination and represent what I see and feel. I am inspired by nature and emotion.
My background & experience
I completed post-graduate coursework in Fine Art and Art History with Syracuse University Abroad in Barcelona. I have undergraduate degrees in Architecture from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and Graphic Design from Parsons The New School for Design, both based in New York City.
I trained as a mentor with the Creative Mentor Network (CMN) in London. I’m an experienced mentor and I enjoy providing guidance to those launching creative endeavours.
I have over 17 years of professional experience across a range of design and creative disciplines. During my years working a designer in technology and advertising, I created experiences across a range of business and consumer-facing products for clients including Hogarth Worldwide (WPP), Santander UK, MediaCom, and Microsoft.
I have experience working with design teams of all sizes and levels of maturity.
I was previously the Lead Instructor of the UX Design Immersive program at General Assembly where I provided instruction and guidance to over 100 students.
