Carol ELkovich is an interdisciplinary artist with concentrations in visual work through painting, installation, sculpture, and she also writes fiction.

Her work has been included in corporate collections such as Nokia, Adobe Systems, and Kaiser Permanente. Her work has been selected by noted curators from the Guggenheim Museum and the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art and exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently at the Czong Institute of Contemporary Art in South Korea, and in galleries in Brooklyn NY and Ventura CA. She has been awarded residencies at Vermont Studio Center, I-Park Residency, and Kala Institute. Her work is represented by Elins Eagle-smith Gallery at 49 Geary in San Franciscos and her work has appeared in gallery exhibitions throughout the country as well as at the Trition Museum, Bolinas Museum, and Art Fairs in Los Angeles and San Francisco.  

Much of her practice is focused on a relationship to the environment. She is interested in the physical and rationalized constructions of contemporary life and questions the structures shaping our physical experience, our knowledge, our relationships, and our memories.  

Writing collaboratively with her partner, their short stories have been published under the pseudonym C.M. West. They are at work on two novel manuscripts in the crime fiction genre. 

Ms. Elkovich has extensive teaching experience in delivering studio courses at CCA and UC Berkeley. She has taught college-level studios for over twenty years in areas of drawing, painting, sculpture, design, architecture, and digital processes. She lives and works at a studio/house she built with her husband in the East Bay with their son and a crazy-eyed Boston Terrier.
