Portrait commissions are an important part of my studio practice as I am a storyteller at heart. Celebrating someone’s story by way of a personal sculpture is both fun and gratifying. I enjoy sharing the process with my clients, from deciding on pose, adding special details and getting just the right facial portrayal to create a lasting legacy piece.
From one pet on a couch to an entire 3 generations of a family, anything is possible. Over the past 30 years my portrait work has found its way in private collections across continents including Canada, USA, the United Kingdom and Japan.

Elaine has worked as a ceramic sculptor for almost 40 years (remarkably, she looks like she must have started when she was 5!) 🙂 From public installations to gallery shows, corporate collections to private commissions, outdoor murals to intimate portraits, Elaine’s passion is telling stories in clay.
