Born and raised in Chicago, IL....Elmer has been a fish hobbyist since childhood. 'I have aquariums all around my house.' Fish hobbyist understand this obsession.He also love to take pictures and I loves flowers as you can see in his drawing. It wasn't until 2006 that he was interested in drawing them and painting them. 'I never thought I would have these 'Beauties' displayed publicly.' It was only by friends and popular artist that have encouraged him to show his art to the world. He has more than 200 pieces of art that has not been shown. He will be adding more art as time goes by. 'Everytime I look at one them I experience 'Peace'. Email Elmer if you have any questions.
