From making clothes and bicycle floats for her kids, to painting, screenprinting, spinning and weaving, Elaine has always been creative. A clay sculpting workshop with Janna Pameijer in 1999, however, ignited a passion for sculpting. For many years clay was her medium of choice and Elaine’s sculptures can be found in Public buildings in Moranbah and Charters Towers. During a recent holiday in New Zealand, she discovered the creamy Oamaru Limestone and has enjoyed creating beautiful shapes from the stone, many inspired by the Maori Pikorua.
She also enjoys working in our beautiful NQ timbers, particularly when carving our local wildlife and can be found carting lumps of interesting wood back on her kayak, when she’s paddling in Lake Tinaroo.
