Elaine Nason was born in Walton on the Naze, Essex and studied at Colchester School of Art from 1955 to 1959. She went to Trent Park Teacher Training College in 1961 and taught in primary schools in London and Suffolk from 1963 to 1999 with special responsibility for art. Elaine has continued painting and exhibiting from that time.
Elaine creates figurative paintings and prints which convey her interest in the quotidian events of everyday. Her artworks are quiet and reflective, and each piece has narrative thread which resonates from the paint.
Elaine has exhibited widely in East Anglia and is a member of the Suffolk Group and Artworks.
