“Nature’s vibrant and infinite color palette inspire me the most. I am at peace outdoors, in the quiet of the wilderness or overlooking the grand landscape. It’s where I recharge and is essential to my soul. My work as an artist reflects this and my goal is to create beautiful, serene images for people to enjoy. Like most artists, I often compose images in my mind long before I ever find myself at the right location. And as I walk along a trail, suddenly it will hit me- that’s it, that’s the shot and I will sit there for as long as it takes to capture what’s in my mind. As a photographer, I don’t feel that one should be constrained to merely documenting the scene before them. I see the camera and post-processing software as tools to express my vision of the world that surrounds me.”

Elane’s work will be on display February 8 to April 7, 2017. She will be in attendance for both of the two 3rd Friday Receptions, February 17 and March 17, 4-8pm.
