Elsie Bouffler

Elsie Bouffler - I first discovered painting in the USA where I moved with my family in 2007, and having unusally some time on my hands, attended an art class and so began my love of painting.

Working between oils and watercolour I enjoy using colour and texture to express the world around me. Many of my paintings are the result of something which has caught my eye in the fields or hedgerow as I walk the dog in the north Essex Landscape.
For me painting is all about making the mark, the joy to be found in taking brush over canvas and seeing the sometimes unexpected result is a freedom that never diminishes.

I live with my husband and two daughters in North Essex and often use my work in my preaching in the local anglican church.
