Elsa’s studio is in an old Smithy at her Cotswold cottage. It is a perfect setting to work in. She likes to think of it as having been a working place for many years before she was there. Her art training came from her studies with Robin Child at the Lydgate Art Research Centre in Wiltshire and more recently in Devon. He is a continuing source of inspiration and informs her work both consciously and subconsciously. His current lectures continue this visionary approach.
She usually begins working from a drawing, sometimes a quick scribble of a subject that has captured her imagination... or a memory of a landscape or a glimpse from a train window... then she attempts to build it into a finished painting.
Many artists have influenced her work thanks to Robin and his extraordinary insight. From Cezanne to Giorgio Morandi, Nicholas de Stael and Richard Diebenkorn... she observes and tries to learn from the lessons that they reveal.
She has been able to devote her life to painting for the last eighteen years and will continue to do so.
Elsa has exhibited widely throughout the UK including regular solo shows with Brian Sinfield Gallery in Burford, Lemon Street in Truro and more recently with the Jackson Gallery in Rock. Also in London , Bristol and Sherborne Dorset with Mark Jerram. The new gallery in Hungerford which has its roots with the Rosvik Collective at Little Bedwyn carries the teaching of Robin Child into another perspective furthering the work of his accomplished artists.
