Elaine Hahn, a native of Kansas City, Missouri, holds a BA and MA in Art from the University of Missouri, and has studied with noted artists throughout the United States, England and Mexico. Her early career was influenced by her experience at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City. She is a Signature member of the Oil Painters of America, the Miniature Artists of America, American Women Artists, the American Society of Marine Artists, the National Association of Artists, the Paint America Association Signature Society, the Florida Artists Group, and the  Florida Plein Air Society. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America and the International Guild of Realism and an Art Renewal Living Artist. She is also a Signature member of the American Watercolor and the National Watercolor Societies. Her paintings have achieved prominence through acceptance and awards in major national juried exhibitions.

Her works are included in private and corporate collections throughout the United States. She has taught and conducted Workshops in the US and Europe and has served as a judge in Art Shows on the local, regional and national levels.

Her work has been published by Rockport Publishers in the Best of Watercolor and the Best of Florals.
