I'm passionate about spreading joy and creativity. My classes bring friends together to share laughter and connect in a fun, inspiring environment.
Surrounded by art from an early age, thanks to my artist mother, I've always been drawn to creativity. While I initially pursued a career in healthcare, my overseas experiences in South Asia showed me that art is a universal language.
After returning to the US in 2017 and marrying my musician husband Eric, I decided to focus on my art. I started Walls by Elaine, a successful mural business in Portland, where I loved translating clients' stories into art. Now, here in the desert, I've combined my love for teaching and art, with a focus on dot mandala painting. It's been incredibly rewarding to guide people, even those who don't consider themselves artistic, in creating beautiful gifts or display pieces.
In the words of Picasso, 'Every child is an artist; the challenge is how to remain one once we grow up.'
