Elaine Offley


Artist working with mixed Media and a love of colour !

Since childhood I have had an interest in the creative use of materials, ranging from drawing and painting, to working with textiles. I am particularly drawn to colour and that influences a lot of my work.

A busy career restricted my creative pursuits to up- cycling vintage fabrics for home furnishings, in my spare time. In the past few years, my love of painting came to the fore. I began working with watercolour and pastels and then with Acrylic and more recently with oil paints; They are all fun to use and I often combine them in my work.

My style is ‘impressionistic’ and abstract and I have a wide range of subject interests. I enjoy working ‘En plain air’ or from photographs, Still life, land/seascapes and portraits. An eclectic mix!

Art is very subjective, but I aim to create something in my work that appeals to the aesthetic of others.
