Elaine Kehew is a working artist living in Nairobi, Kenya. She focuses on painting and printmaking, and particularly on combining printmaking techniques such as linocuts and screenprinting into her finished paintings. Unable to keep her passionate views about the environment out of her work, the pieces often reflect her views on the changing landscape in the developing world.
In addition to painting, Elaine loves tennis, sailing, vegetarian cooking, and reading literary novels. She lives with her husband, the poet and playwright Robert Kehew, and their two children, in Lower Kabete.
