About

Hi, I'm Elaine - and I'm thrilled that you're here!

I've been an artist since I was a small child, using the chalk from a broken wall to draw on the slate sidewalk in front of my home.

I've been teaching since I was a teenager, tasked with doing arts and crafts for summer kids camp.  Now I work to bring art curriculum to active senior centers, teach art in my community, and run art programs for kids.

I've had a long career filled with lots of artsy stuff, from illustrating an international children's magazine to paintings hanging in public and private spaces across the US, including Joy Gardens in California and The Brentwood Library in Tennessee. I especially love that my work is in a few healing centers, among them is Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville.  

These days I'm happy to guide others into being their already creative selves.

Bringing art instruction online helps me to reach YOU - it's my prayer that you can find a means of expressing yourself that makes your heart sing!

When my students ask me what my favorite medium is, I say "The one I'm working with at that moment" because I enjoy so many of them. I love to draw, paint, and create, and I love to share what I know, too.

There are many ways to make art...let's have some fun with them!
