TO INSPIRE. TO INFORM. TO GIVE BACK.
About ENA Artgroup
Greetings, fellow art lovers! My name is Elsie Noemi Arredondo, and it is my privilege to introduce myself as the founder and driving force behind the ENA Art Group. And yes, those are my initials!
I have an MS degree in Regulatory Affairs and have spent many years in director roles within the healthcare system. For just as long, I've been actively supporting non-profits in my hometown of San Diego.
Ever since I was a kid, my heart has beat for the arts—visual, music, performing, and literature. So, I took classes in drawing, piano, and dance. I couldn't stop writing either—I was always jotting down my thoughts and short stories.
All these experiences fed my creative soul. Yet, I yearned to transform my love for the arts into a career—something I could embrace full-time.
"the founder and driving force behind the ENA Art Group. And yes, those are my initials!"
And then in 2013, it happened. After our youngest left for college, something inside me said, “Do it!" So, I mustered up all my courage (and savings) and took a leap of faith. I waved goodbye to my secure job and went all in buying an established art gallery in La Jolla. It was a life-altering experience that brought out the very best of me. I renamed the art gallery, Arredon Art.
I immersed myself in the incredible artwork of talented artists, connected with amazing art collectors, and found inspiration I never knew existed. For over a decade, I curated numerous exhibitions across three different gallery venues in San Diego, all while keeping our gallery's mission focused on giving back to our community.
In 2019, I embarked on a mission to infuse my knack for analysis into the art world. I returned to school and became an Accredited Member of the International Society of Appraisers, specializing in fine art. This newfound skill not only allowed me to bring a fresh dimension to the art gallery but also provided me with an exciting opportunity to represent private collections.
Writing has remained my haven, a way to handle the challenges of running my own small business. As time flowed, my musings in journals transformed into a fresh adventure in fiction writing, offering me a new outlet for creative expression. And let me tell you, I'm absolutely thrilled about it! 📝🌟
From diving into intricate artwork to crafting stories, I firmly believe that creativity, knowledge, and community service have the power to enrich and uplift our lives.
At ENA Art Group, our mission is to inspire through exhibitions & readings, inform via art appraisals & workshops, and give back to our vibrant community of artists and art enthusiasts at every level.
