Her art is an exhilarating mix of moods, modern, minimalistic and contemporary. She is inspired by the freedom of movement in nature and the intense use of shadow and light.   Eighteen years worth of teaching art has inspired her. Her favorite colors to work with includes silver, bronze, gold, brown, black and all the timeless natural earth tones like the cement color Botticelli. She works in most mediums and will paint on any size canvas. Her paintings are ideal for hotels, restaurants, corporate environments and ultra modern living spaces.   Elsa has also designed and painted sets and props for theater productions which is used in the Roodepoort Civic Theater.
