Theis Eljas grew up as the son of an artist in a small fishing town between Copenhagen and Elsinore. In a very early age he was trained in art techniques and art philosophies by his father and the many artists and writers being friends of the house...

Eljas has been a full-time artist for more than thirty years only interrupted by part time teaching in the late seventies.
He is living in an old 16th century estate in a beautiful forest area in Southern Sweden.
