Elin is born in 1970 and studied Fine Arts at Goldsmiths College, University of London, the Royal College of Art in Stockholm and holds an MA in Architecture from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. In a series of collaboratory works her artistic practice elaborates on the private home concerning textile and cooking with a certain interest in female social culture creating architecture based on decoration and social networks.

‘My work is operating in the interface between art and architecture in the public space and explores how experimental art- and architecture projects could function as catalysts for social and architectural changes.’

In December 2011, she exhibited the project My Kitchen at the show Smack bang at the People’s Port/H+ in Helsingborg, Sweden.
