Hi, I’m Elaine McCracken.
As an artist, I constantly strive to capture the present moment’s essence in my work. When I am creating a painting, I am fully immersed in the process, allowing myself to be guided by my intuition and the materials at hand. This approach will enable me to tap into a sense of flow and connection with the artwork and helps me create something truly authentic and true to my vision.
I believe that this sense of presence and connection is evident in my art, and it is something that I strive to communicate to the viewer. Whether bold and expressive or subtle and ethereal, my paintings are infused with a sense of energy and movement that invites the viewer to delve deep into a world of fluidity and transformation.
Through my art, I hope to inspire others to embrace the present moment and to find meaning and beauty in the everyday. This is the key to creating work that is truly meaningful and powerful. So, I always try to be present in the painting process and to let the artwork unfold in its own time, allowing myself to be fully immersed in the creative process.
