Juried Artist Member-of-the-Month


Artist – Designer

A lifetime artist, Porter’s paintings and fine prints hang in private & corporate collections worldwide including Pranda Jewelry, Thailand, Sony, Fuji, JVC Plastics etc

Scenes that convey a serine mood or tell a story, always inspire me. To capture that place in paint is my goal.

– Elaine Porter

With a love for color and light, I am a Plein Air painter. I also enjoy studio work, implementing my collected observations of nature along with reference to my photographs. Some things I see in oil, some in watercolor or mixed media.  In addition to painting, I’m also a passionate gardener. I gain a lot of visual inspiration from watching the miracle of renewal, as the perennials make their annual entrance.
