When Elsa was four, she asked her mother (who is not a bad artist) to help her draw something. Her mother complied. When Elsa glimpsed the final product, she gave her mother a withering, pitying look and went back to the fabled drawing board. DSCN1847.JPGShe never asked her mother for help in drawing again. Instead, she drew and drew. And sorted her colored pencils endlessly. Elsa allowed her father, who is an amazing artist, to instruct her and she grew and grew. Her aunt, Elida Field, is also an accomplished artist, and she helped too. Now, she is a professional artist IMG_0699.JPGstudying art at Linfield.

She’s also pretty good at tennis. Go Wildcats!
