Elaine Hughes creates all of her work with a palette knife due to the texture and movement it gives to an oil painting. The focus of much of Elaine's artwork has been on children and families. Having been born and raised in Southern California, she has developed a love for the coast and will usually make it the setting for her paintings.
Argentine tango dancing is her passion. She tries to paint the feeling that the dance evokes as opposed to the movement. The connection between partners is the essence of the dance. In painting and dancing, technical ability falls short without heart and soul.
"I hope that someone looking at my paintings will stop, be still, and realize the beauty in the simple moments of their lives."
