Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website.
 

My paintings explore color and movement while paying homage to the natural world. My process is organic and for me, my paintings are about the act of creating as much as they are about the finished product. When I start a painting I am inspired by something specific - a color, object, or texture - but as the painting develops it takes on a life of its own and tells me what needs to happen next. The finished painting rarely looks anything like what I initially envisioned, but it is the journey and surprise ending that gets me excited to start the next painting.

 

I am a Lowell, MA native but currently live in Medford, MA with my husband, two little girls, and dog Matilda. I currently do not have a studio open to the public but if you would like more information or are interested in purchasing any of my work please contact me at elainabatesegan@gmail.com.
