About the art
Elin Erikson, born in Kristinehamn, Sweden, revived her interest for art in 2008 while living in Madrid and painting in an art studio in the center of the city with Lourdes Presedo Suárez as her mentor. Her oil paintings are characterized by layers of vivid colors and a fair amount of realism with a twist. Often, she aims to capture moments and to tell stories through her paintings.
Elin has an academic background with a Bachelor in International Business from Linköping University (2007) and a MsC in Business from Stockholm University (2011). This year she also completed a course in Physical Activity and Personal Training offered by FEDA Madrid (Prescripción al Ejercicio Físico y Entrenamiento Personal). Apart from Sweden, Elin has lived and worked in three different countries; Ashburn VA (USA), Attard (Malta), Los Cristianos, Alcalá de Henares, Zaragoza and Madrid (Spain).
