Bio/Manifesto

I'm a professional artist living in the Seattle WA area. I am best known for urban and rural landscapes, and have works in collections throughout the US and in Europe. You can see some of my paintings at http://www.williamelston.com/ . I teach painting, in privately offered seasonal plein air workshops. I train in Seido Karate, and have 3rd degree (sandan) black belt ranking. I am a lead instructor for Seido Karate adult classes at the Northshore YMCA in Bothell, WA, and lead instructor for kids' classes at Northshore. I also assist with kids' classes at Dale Turner YMCA in Shoreline, WA. I am also the Seattle Seido Karate webmaster. I do some computer related work on the side, mostly web design, database design, network design and management, training etc. I designed the first commercial gallery websites in the Pacific Northwest, for Davidson Galleries and Francine Seders Gallery. I continue to manage the Davidson Galleries network.
