Norwegian intuitive artist based in San Diego. El Løvaas was born and raised in a small town in Norway. The long dark winters allowed her to spend much of her time indoors creating a variety of art. El put her passion for painting on hold to raise three children who are all young professional artists. She has returned to her passion in her Southern California studio. El appreciates all the valuable lessons from art professors and schools, but developing her skills outside the structure of the traditional classroom gave her the true freedom she needed to create meaningful work.
