has been painting since the age of nine and selling her paintings since
1983. She was recognized when she was in her teens for her artistic talent
by the late Millard Sheets, and since then she has studied and painted in
South America, Central America and Mediterranean Europe.
Her award-winning paintings are found in both private and corporate

by North Light. Other paintings have been featured in the Artists Magazine,
Art Talk, and Horses in Art magazines.
Elin's home and studio are located in the mountainous terrain north of the
Temecula wine country of Southern California. Perched high on a hill, the
studio overlooks the morning sun warming the massive mountains of the San
Jacinto and San Gorgonio Wilderness Areas. She lives with her husband, a
university professor, and a variety of domestic animals (horses, goats,
dogs, cats, chickens) all of which have found their way into her paintings.
