Elaine is a resident artist at the Stronghouse Studios, 283 South Fir Street in Telluride,CO.
The world of color continues to amaze me, with its juxtapositions and overlays combining to create an exciting new visual and tactile experience. I continue to explore dualities in emotions within Abstract painting, but also explores colors and patterns in relationship to the Figure, Still-Life, and Landscape.
