Elaine

I was born in Melbourne and moved to Sydney at 4 years old. Growing up in beautiful Hunter’s Hill where my art career started by winning highly commended junior art award several times in the Hunter’s Hill Art Show. As I grew up in the area I was strongly influenced by its charm, surrounding bush and the Lane Cove River.

‘Inspiration is everywhere’

I have always appreciated the simplicity of nature and its sensational colours and textures. My inspiration comes from the often unnoticed beauties of everyday life; such texture, flowers, our vast land, the sky or just weathered wood. I appreciate and admire the beauty waiting to be translated through paint.

My work represents what is all around us and seen through my eyes. I work in oil or acrylic and mixed media on canvas or linen, layering and using techniques to explore colour and texture. My style is always changing and evolving.
