Els Mommers has been living on the beautiful island of Saba since 1987 with her husband Gied.
They had taught here for about 10 years in secondary education and then started El Momo Cottages (learn more about it here). In 1998 this small Eco-hotel changed hands and Els continued with her shop - El Momo Folkart.
She sold this shop, with pain in her heart, in 2009. This means now she has the time to devote herself to painting, hobbies, sewing, and reading. She did the 2nd-degree course textile work forms at the Witte Lelie in Amsterdam.
