Creating art with a purpose
My job as an illustrator isn’t just to create something beautiful. My job is to use design to educate, to inspire and to make the world a better place. And this is exactly why I love what I do!
My name is Elisa Castagna. I am an illustrator, artist and author based in Accra, Ghana, where I work from my home studio surrounded by my human and dog babies! I am originally Italian, but I have lived in Ghana my entire life. I have been practicing art in all forms since I was a child, and it is my passion to create that has led me to where I am now.
I love to travel and experience different cultures and ways of life. I am very passionate about nature and find a lot of my inspiration from things around me. My ultimate goal is for my illustrations to serve our environment and communities positively. Part of my creative purpose is to educate children and adults alike to appreciate, protect and nurture our planet earth.
If you are looking for a fun, well rounded human, that creates colourful illustrations in a colourful studio then you’re in the right place!
