Eleonora Ronconi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1969. Growing up in Buenos Aires she excelled in her art studies, and was also gifted in sciences. Balancing these multiple passions, she attended medical school for four years, then chose to follow her entrepreneurial spirit and fluency in multiple languages to begin a career in conference interpreting. Her business has allowed her travel the world, and in 1998 she settled in Palo Alto, CA and established her own successful interpreting company.
She has passionately continued her studies in art history, painting, and photography. She has taken workshops with Eddie Soloway, Mary Ellen Mark, Sam Abel, Ed Kashi and Jay Maisel among others, and her work has been selected to participate in several juried exhibitions in the past four years. Her first solo exhibition was in her native Buenos Aires in 2008. Her work has been published by the Maine Department of Labor and a California-based non-profit, Friends of Hue Foundation. Some of her pieces have been acquired by private collectors around the country.
