Frequently Asked Questions 

Is this difficult to learn and do? The process itself isn't difficult, it's fun and easy to get amazing results! The time it takes to do a piece depends on the size of your work and the amount of detail that you want to add to it.

Are the materials expensive? All of the materials are inexpensive and easy to buy at a craft store, art supply store, or online, and I provide buying suggestions and links to materials so that you'll know exactly what you need.

Do I need any previous experience creating art? This is perfect for you if you're just starting out, but even a seasoned artist will enjoy this process.

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

You want to make some art, and I'd love to make that easy for you.

I've had a long career in art-related fields, teaching art to all ages, illustrating an international children's magazine, and painting works that hang in public and private spaces across the US.

These days I'm happy to guide others into being their already creative selves. I work to bring art curriculum to active senior centers, teach art in my community, and run art programs for kids. Bringing some 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!
