Inspiration comes from all aspects
of life. Collaborating on commissioned projects allows for a unique
flow of creative energy - the collective manifestation of artist’s
and client’s inner values.
Often both Elaine and Lynne will work together designing and executing
the commissioned work, combining their individual talents: Elaine's
painting reflects her strong sense of sculptural form which complements
Lynne's more painterly style and sense of pattern and design.
"This “co-creativity” is fulfilling both to the
client’s aspirations as well as to our own creative expression."
Trompe l’oeil ("trick the eye" or illusionistic)
mural painting creates a sense of wonder - it delightfully demands
that the viewer participates in reassessing the concept of “reality”
and, at the same time, the paintings create a feeling of expansion
and the glorification of an environment.
