Born and living in Blackburn, Elaine enjoyed a successful career in textile design for many top UK and American companies before becoming a fulltime artist and was around colour and texture all her working life.

She has worked in many styles, but has aways been drawn to landscape, whether it be quirky high street and shops or vibrantly coloured focal trees with characters who populate these colourful scenes.  Elaine has been a successful artist for many years in the UK , with her work sought after by collectors nationally and internationally.
