|Born in Scotland, Elsie immigrated to Canada in 1962. She raised her three children in Mississauga, and moved to Cobourg in 1997.
Elsie developed her love of art in the 1940s when she was fortunate to live within walking distance of the well-known Glasgow Art Gallery. As a young child, she visited this gallery several times a week, considering it her playground.
A self-taught painter, Elsie began painting in earnest 20 years ago, using oils and watercolours as her preferred media. She paints mainly in oils.
Elsie is a member of the Pine Ridge Art Association. Her art has been exhibited and sold at numerous venues including the Art Gallery of Northumberland. Elsie paints commissioned works.
