Eloisa Henderson Figueroa

My aim in life is to fill the world with joy through colour and shapes. I love seeing the happiness that painting murals can bring to people’s lives and how much people enjoy seeing walls transformed into pieces of art.

I grew up in North West London with my musician parents, always surrounded by interesting sounds and being taken to amazing gigs, which has influenced my creativity and made me see the beauty of following your passion.

Most people want to know what my background is culturally and educationally. So I’m half Scottish, half Chilean, with a little bit of Lebanese thrown in there!

I studied 3D Materials Practice at the University of Brighton where I specialised in making toys and games for children with emotional and behavioural problems. Since then I’ve worked in many creative jobs such as painting props for films and tv, window displays, cake decorating and starting my own clothing business. It’s only in the past few years I’ve really discovered what I love and have found my passion in colourful abstract art.
