Elena is Barbara’s twin sister. She is a naturalistic and scientific illustrator and an environmental educator for the youth.
She was born and raised in a tiny village in the north of Italy named Chiuduno in the Bergamo Province from artisan parents. Chiuduno is where she currently lives.
At the same time as Barbara started drawing, Elena developed her artistic skills on a mirror image of her sister, the funny thing being that Barbara is left handed and Elena is right handed.
Elena’s love for nature and her desire to become acquainted with it in all its aspects brings her, after graduating from the Agricultural Technical Institute, to purse a degree in Biological Sciences.
She approached for the first time the realization of scientific illustrations during an internship at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Bergamo. After this experience she began producing accurate tables for research and scientific publications.
Between her College studies and her collaboration with the Museum, Elena had the chance to work also in the field of environmental education for the youth, creating a variety of designs and illustrations of an educational and informative nature. After graduating, she continues her path as a naturalistic illustrator and she organizes and directs drawing classes dedicated to this topic.
Thanks to her skills in the illustration field, Elena won multiple awards and her work has been featured in many publications.
To educate people about the subject of Naturalistic and Scientific illustrations, Elena has created the website IllustrazioneNaturalistica.it
Elena’s interest in artistic creations does not stop to illustration. She completed an extensive pastry chef course and a one year internship at an excellent Italian bakery where she perfected those skills. But her artistic nature brings her now to develop her ability to create sugar paste sculptures which can be seen on her facebook page “Il Mondo di Ielle - Top4cake”
Her new website dedicated to her sugar art can be found at top4cake.com
It is because of her love for youth education and her deep knowledge of nature and biology, that she could not miss the opportunity to collaborate with her twin sister in the creation of educational coloring books; introducing the brand “Twins Pelizzoli Publications”.
