Originally from Ontario, Canada, Elaine now lives and works in San Francisco. She creates contemporary landscape paintings that strive to capture the essence of nature as it feels to her at this time, namely, sacred, stoic, and tranquil. She seeks to conjure a particularly idyllic moment in time, and that moment need not be a named place, for one can look at it and see many places in it.

Painting with knives rather than brushes, dots rather than strokes, Coombs’ plays with pattern, repetition and color tone in such a way that these qualities have become a secondary, abstract subject matter in their own right. Elaine’s work has been exhibited across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Notable collections include: the United States Department of State – Art Bank Program; The City and County of San Francisco Civic Art Collection; various Kaiser Permanente and UCSF medical facilities; the Ritz Carlton Highlands Hotel in Lake Tahoe; and Imagery Estate Winery.
