A lifetime Painter, Elaine Porter has paintings in private and corporate collections worldwide including Fuji, Sony, JVC, Pranda Jewelry Intl., and more.
Inspired by her observations of life, Porter finds no shortage of subject matter. Plein Air painting has always been a passion. In recent years Porter's work is also done in the studio working from inspirations from her catalog of photographs taken in her travels. Her newest work involves the combination of many years of painting in various mediums including handmade papers and various materials to create and depict the color and textures we see everywhere in our world.
In addition to her art, Porter is passionate about sculpting cement. She incorporates leaves, glass and paint to create beautiful birdbaths and table pieces. - Just another textural expression of her art.
