Biography

  •  Elisa Fenoglio graduated from the “Accademia Albertina”, Fine Arts University of Turin, Italy in 1997, specializing in Scenography and Costume. Her entrance into the Italian arts world was immediate and an important experience was gained in theatre, television and the cinema alongside some of the greatest directors and costume designers. After these rewarding experiences in showbiz Elisa got married and decided to dedicate herself to a job that would allow her to look after her family but also express her creativity. Over the past 8 years Elisa has dedicated herself to drawing, she especially loves making portraits in pencil. She has participated in prestigious exhibitions in Italy and Germany. At this time an important art gallery in Turin showing her personal exhibition with some portraits of Hollywood stars. She also enjoys making illustrations for children's books. Another her great loves is costumes, ancient clothing of past epochs which fit the dolls in 1:12 miniature scale. And thank to this passion she has become an Igma Artisan. For many years Eliza used commercial porcelain bodies but then decided to learn how to make not only the costumes but the dolls themselves. Now she makes OOAK sculptures which reconciles the passion she has in shaping and creating small human figures with the ability to create miniature clothes, where the choice of materials and the combination of colors are critical to the success of a good composition.
