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. I'm represented in Seattle by Davidson Galleries. 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.
