Elaine DeCoursey, Painter
A Visual Exploration of Ideas
I started painting in 2002. Trained as an architect, I had done a lot of drawing, but it was only when I started painting with my young daughters that I thought could become a painter. I started with flowers in watercolours and various painting workshops. I followed with on-site ink and watercolour sketches in farmers markets. I learned about acrylic techniques and I developed a series with the same focus. Future challenges will be oils and more urban scenes.
