Elinor studied painting at the Heatherly School of Art in London from 1965 to 1968. She has since exhibited with the Royal institute of Oil Painters at the Mall Galleries, Piccadilly, with the Royal Society of British Artists, the New English Art Club, the Chelsea Art Society, the Bath Contemporary Art Fair, and has had seven solo exhibitions in the United Kingdom. She has also participated in group exhibitions in France, namely: The Paris Salon, the Biennale Art 24, Perigueux and the Centre Culturel in Bergerac. For the past eleven years she has lived and painted in Cape Town. This will be her third solo exhibition at The Cape Gallery. She paints whenever possible in front of the motif.
"Recently I have been painting out of doors which has been a change
from studio work and has forced me to be quicker and reassess my technique.
The Dutch homesteads are in this category and I hope I have caught the
atmosphere of these old houses many of which though no longer lived in
by their original families are still full of their presence. I have also
done more painting with the palette knife which alters the way in which
light is reflected off the painting surface and is particularly suitable
with still life.
