Artist Statement

"ART:  Communicating a moment of colorful joy from artist to viewer. The moment may be a flower, a field of flowers, a sunset, a feeling, an idea. I feel that art adds peace and depth to one’s soul.
    I love to walk and photograph those moments, always with the goal of a tapestry.  I need to live to be 500 to weave them all!  I sketch,  paint,  then  select  yarns of many colors and textures for each weaving.  It is exciting to magnify a flower many-fold to express the beauty and complexity of its center and colors. I love to weave a sunset sky. I hope my catching a moment will 'catch your eye.'​​                                - Elaine
