After education at UCLA,
Her artistic development has also moved rapidly from representational to abstract art in a very brief period of time. Her abstract art is loose and free flowing and has been described as "intuitive", " spontaneous", creating a sense of "limitless space", having "light interact with matter in a way that breaks down the barriers between the physical and the ethereal ", offering " a cosmic, dreamy experience", conveying "the immediate pleasures of paint itself...with sensuous satisfaction and ...autonomous beauty." Her latest review was highlighted by this assessment of her work: "Bucholtz ...boldly carries the torch of Abstract Expressionism into the postmodern era by virtue of her energetic paint handling and unerring sense of form and color."

In terms of the historical sweep of art development, her work easily falls under the general rubric of Abstract Expressionism. However, it moves on from that approach to a more lyrical style with an innovative use of very informal strokes, incomplete forms, unusual arrangements, and "accidentals", gestures that seem to fall where they may, to create a more serendipitous experience for the viewer. Her use of color, too, is unique to her style by being freely chosen based on visual connections rather than on rules.
Elinore hopes to develop these techniques for even more serendipitous adventures on the part of her viewers and toward the creation of a new category of art that will be known as Abstract Lyricism.
