All About Elin Thomas



 Artistic Background 

Elin 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 Europe. She is traditionally trained, with a bachelor's degree in fine art from San Diego State University. 

Her award-winning paintings are found in both private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe and she continues to produce commission work. She has studied with noted artists Richard Schmid, Al Brouilette, Joyce Pike, Robert E. Wood and Ovanes Berberian. In addition, she is a skilled teacher and conducts workshops for aspiring painters featuring her Color System for getting good color, every time. She markets her work primarily through her web sites and higher-end galleries.

Elin's home and studio are located inside the Nature Preserve of Box Springs Mountain near Riverside, Southern California. Surrounded by over 8,000 acres of open space, yet minutes away from the University of California Riverside, her creative environment is an artistic Eden. She lives with a variety of domestic animals (sheep, dogs, cats, chickens, as of this writing) all of which have found their way into her paintings.
