Elisa describes her mural as intimate and introspective and is based on a photograph her partner took but not of Elisa herself. Exploring the Nuart Aberdeen 2022 theme of 'Reconnect', Elisa decided " depict a person who is spending time with herself at home".

Elisa, who studied painting and drawing in a traditional school in Barcelona, wants her artworks to be “figurative and realistic”. She is interested in 'colour atmosphere' and puts a lot of effort in creating that in her artwork through careful brush stroke technique.

Elisa wanted to make sure her new mural fitted into Aberdeen's Granite city surroundings and has incorporated the same shape of window in the surrounding buildings into the window painted in the mural.
