About the Artist

Elisabeth Antoine

 Elisabeth Antoine was born and raised in France. She studied art in Paris under the direction of Agnes Tassin while working in the field of neuropsychology.


In 1998 Elisabeth left behind her medical career and moved to Maplewood, NJ with her family. While raising two children she began pursuing a career in art, choosing ELAN as her artist name. ELAN was drawn from the first two letters of her first and last name.

Elisabeth is passionate about art’s healing power as it allows people to express themselves, increase their self-confidence, and experience joy. Her goal is for people to explore and experience art in every aspect of their lives. 

Today, Elisabeth teaches private art classes, paints murals, and shows her paintings in galleries and public venues in New York, New Jersey, and Paris. She also applies her artistic talent to food art and has co-authored a series of cookbooks.
