 Elise Kohl is a recognized and critically acclaimed New England artist that has built up a fan following from her fun and festive water color
paintings.  Her roots in the rugged, remote Gaspé region of Quebec led her to paint another series- villagers digging clams, cattle, birds, and
domestic fowl. One of her series,”Fish and Chicks” is in bright, noisy colors, and  another, “Roosters”, displays her playful and humorous side.  
Her roosters are often rendered foolish, yet always in control.  There is a mysterious, sometimes serious side to her paintings as well. A rusty
Canadian National snowplow lies forgotten in an abandoned rail yard. This remnant of rail service of times past was once her lifeline to the cities
of Quebec and indeed all of Canada.
 Elise Kohl exhales an intense, interior vision, which is always off the beaten path. Her expressionistic paintings are sometimes immense,
always luminous, always bursting with movement and energy. Some critics say her work has a “power that lingers”.
During the 90’s Ms. Kohl taught several watercolor workshops in Quebec. There she realized how the stern religious education received by
French-Canadians who came of age in the 50’s still strongly affected them. The experience awakened the ghost in herself. She began painting a
22-painting series of Catholic nuns, which she named “Chapelet de Vie”(Rosary of Life).
 Kohl is presently painting a second series, which she simply calls “Fun Nuns”. Six have been painted. Kohl wants the viewer of these paintings
to enjoy another aspect of life-playfulness. Ms. Kohl has been active in art associations around NH for many years. She was vice president of the
Nashua Art Assoc. in 1985.  In 1988-90 she served as president of the New Hampshire Art Association.
