Being an artist to me means living, and I'm impelled to work. I need to work and if I don't I feel at odds with myself and the world. When I do work, sometimes things come out in a rather magical way. Being an artist means having had that experience of being at one with everything and feeling at one with yourself. That beautiful feeling is something I try to capture, but of course if you want to capture it you don't. It's a gift, I think, that comes to you.
Welcome | Bonjour
Elaine will have a solo exhibition at Galerie 12, Aberdeen
Cultural Centre, Moncton, from April 8 to May 4, 2016,
with the vernissage Friday, April 15, from 5 to 7 pm.
The show is called "Moncton Did You Know?"
and features 12 collages by Elaine and 12 poems
by Ed Lemond, with the focus on 12 places in Moncton
where Northrop Frye, the great Canadian thinker, teacher,
and author, left his mark. Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec,
Frye lived in Moncton from 1919 to 1929,
his formative years.
"Recent works" is a sampling from Elaine's show at Galerie 12
in Moncton in the spring of 2014.
Elaine's paintings can be purchased from the artist using Paypal
or personal cheque, as can her book, The Seven Gates:
