Biography from David Cook Galleries:
Haynes, Elsie Haddon

Elsie Haddon Haynes was born on the Isle of Wight in England. Her father, a historian, was a professor at Cambridge. Elsie was raised in Wimbledon, England, and received formal training in art at the Herkomer Art School in Hertfordshire, England, during 1905 and 1906. She later studied in Belgium, Brussels and Bruges followed by study in Paris between 1908 and 1909. She settled in Cambridge in 1911 where she worked as an artist.

During World War I, Elsie went to France where she served in a YMCA “hut” that gave food as well as provided recreation to soldiers. It was during her service to the YMCA that she met an American, who was also on the staff at the “hut”, named William Haynes. The couple married in 1919 in L’Havre, France.

The newlyweds relocated to the United States, settling first in Nebraska and then permanently in Denver, Colorado. Haynes’ specialty became landscapes. She travel, though she painted in Europe, California, Arizona, and South Dakota, the Colorado Rockies were her favorite subject. One of her paintings of South Boulder Canyon was purchased as a gift to President Eisenhower.

Haynes was active in the art community in Denver and became a charter member of the Denver Artists’ Guild which was founded in 1928. She continued to reside in Denver until her death in 1963.
