From early on Elayne knew that making art would be a path she would follow.
She is a graduate of the Hartford Art School of the University of Hartford and has been practicing the canvas ever since.
Her subjects vary and she has been told that they depict a dialogue. All things encountered in my Elayne’s life are absorbed, stored and will often surface in a painting. Feeling for her subject is foremost or it is simply “paint on a surface.”
Most recently a few blotches of color will suggest something and she runs with it. It takes a strong sense of composition and a compelling palette. This is a new-found freedom and it is most welcome. At the end of the day a bit of recognition feeds the soul!
Her work has been included in numerous museum and art institution exhibits including:
The Wadsworth Art Museum, Hartford, Ct.
The Berkshire Art Museum, Pittsfield, Ma.
The Slater Museum, Norwich, Ct.
Fairfield University, Fairfield Ct.
The New Britain Museum, New Britain, Ct.
The John Slade Ely House New Haven, Ct.
George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum, Springfield Ma.
She holds memberships in the following:
Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts
Connecticut Watercolor Society
New Haven Paint & Clay
Essex Art Association
Guilford Art League
Mystic Museum of Art
