Aunty Elaine’s style was the most influential on my development as a painter. Both she and Leonie Dennis’ works appealed to me because of their simplicity, naivety and colour. The most important element however are the key lines.
Aunty Elaine was a fellow exhibiting artist at Boomalli Artists and a regular finalist in major awards. Knowing that I became keen to acquire one of her works, her son Troy suggested I might complete this, the last painting Elaine began before passing.
