A natural colourist, Elsa's abstract imagery, combined with her confident use of colours, create delicious harmonies. Her flower pieces are not simply depictions of flowers but vibrant celebrations of colour and texture and her mixing of colours gives great depth to her paintings, the result is intoxicating.
Like many of the best abstract painters, Elsa's work evolved from a traditional base. The Cotswolds, where she lives and paints, with its soft rolling hills and ancient stone villages, has undoubtedly been a strong inspiration, as have the very different landscapes of Cornwall, Scotland and Italy.
"Whether you are drawn to landscapes or still life, these are paintings of the heart and mind and of imagination. I would defy anyone standing in front of a painting by Elsa Taylor not to be moved" - Brian Sinfield
Elsa exhibits regularly with the Brian Sinfield Gallery.
