About me

Elaine Weller is predominately a self taught Artist, who enjoys exploring the many different ways to create. Although starting work in oils, she now paints mostly in acrylics. She attends workshops throughout the year and works passionately at her craft.

Brought up in Bundaberg, Elaine worked as a Sign Painter after completing her schooling. Then moving to Brisbane in the 1990’s, she picked up the brushes at a workshop, just as a hobby.

Painting full-time since 2011, Elaine enjoys vibrant, colourful art that makes people feel happy upon viewing the subject painted. She loves to paint from what inspires her, and trusts in the artistic journey.

Since choosing to paint full-time, Elaine has won some awards and sold her art to many clients around Australia. She has exhibited in group Art Shows every year, and has a yearly Solo Exhibition.

Elaine is a member of the Queensland Royal Art Society in Brisbane, a member of the Bundaberg Arts Association, and a member of the Bribie Island Community Arts Society.
