Hello! I am a freelance artist & pet portrait artist, born and raised in the Midwest. I have studied traditional art mediums during my time at Missouri State University, graduating with a BFA in Fine Art. I primarily work with watercolor, and I use watercolor paper or wood pieces (such as birch & basswood) as my canvas. I enjoy painting animals & nature, as well as pop culture, fantastical creatures, and food too! Most of my work takes on a whimsical playfulness accompanied by detailed floral decoration and flowing lines.
I have also created a dinosaur themed coloring book, all drawn by hand with ink pens, which features 25 different dinosaurs for coloring with any dry medium (colored pencils, markers, crayons, etc). The pages include detailed close ups of dinosaur faces, dinosaurs in their natural habitat, and the name of the dinosaur.
Recently I have tried my hand at designing magnets. I designed a stylish and functional dirty/clean dishwasher magnet, as well as a few quirky designs featuring pizza and daggers.
Most of my time is spent painting cute pups and kitties for clients, maintaining my online shop (via etsy.com/shop/ElaineintheMembrane), or painting various wood pieces for sale in local shops in my hometown, Springfield, MO.
