Born in Mexico City in 1955. From a very young age, Elisa Agami showed keen sensibility towards the arts. She enrolled at the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Institute of Fine Arts) where she studied jewelry, copper enameling and sculpture. Later in Dallas, Texas, she studied drawing at Brookhaven College, and sculpture both at Richland College and at the George Davis Studio.
