Born in Montreal to Italian parents, Elisabetta Fantone grew up with her three older brothers and made the move to Italy at the age of four where she caught the acting bug. Italian-Canadian actor, artist, and author Elisabetta continues to impress with her talent in many mediums, excelling in artistic, film, and literary projects. The international beauty is not only a talented actor, widely recognized reality television personality, model and author, but a gifted painter as well.

Elisabetta has been garnering attention across North America for her engaging Youtube videos, documenting her creating her dynamic art pieces from start to first.

Currently, Elisabetta is gearing up for her next show (her first West coast solo show) at the Kurbatoff Gallery from April 11 to 23. Her recreations of the images of iconic figures are widely popular.

She was notably commissioned by the Kardashian sisters to showcase a piece of her art in their famed Miami clothing boutique DASH.

This latest art show is right off the heels of last year’s well-publicized North American tour. Her pieces were displayed at the Kurbatoff Gallery, The Thompson Landry Gallery in Toronto during TIFF, the Soho Gallery in Montreal and the Myra Galleries in Miami. Her shows paid homage to classic icons, including Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger, Audrey Hepburn and Marlon Brando.
The charismatic actress stars in 2012’s Havana 57. The noir mystery marks the first co-production between Canada and Cuba, and touches upon the subjects of the mob, revolution, and a beautiful dancer, played by Elisabetta.

This multi-talented beauty has been busy with acting roles since she was discovered in 2006, when she won over the hearts of French-speaking Canadians, thanks to the insatiably popular docu-reality TV series “Loft Story”. Since then, Elisabetta has accomplished numerous artistic endeavors, including film and television, modeling, music, painting and literature. She’s also released her first book, “Journal intime d’une Lofteuse”.

When not gracing the covers of magazines around the globe, doing TV interviews, or working, Elisabetta enjoys reading, working out, and baking. She is also associated with Breast Cancer and AIDS charities as well as The Children’s Foundation in Montreal. Elisabetta continues to volunteer her time hosting events, doing commercials, and auctioning her paintings to raise awareness and money for charity.
