Biography


About the Artist
 
Elaine Monnig's desire to be an artist began as a young child and continues to flourish with each new painting adventure.  She draws much inspiration from traveling, enjoying the beauty of Colorado's Rocky Mountains, the brilliant and subtle colors of the Southwest, the calming inspiration of coastlines throughout the United States...each region holds endless painting possibilities.   Elaine has enjoyed painting en plein air throughout the United States, in southern France, the Cotswolds and Lake District of England, Italy, Scotland and Switzerland.  She feels that painting en plein air is not only a great teaching tool, it is also truly inspirational.
