Elaine Phelps has been involved in the arts all her life. She began as a dancer and a poet. She combines her study of the head and figure with clay sculpture. The masks and figures she creates represent her interest in mythology, ancient cultures and world travel. She wants to inspire the viewer to imagine cultures or periods of history that are being suggested. Her love of exploring the interplay of texture, form and color provides backdrop content on panels and canvases.
Currently Elaine is using natural materials in order to help the viewer realize the beauty of the Arizona terrain. She is uses rust, metals, organics, glass and paper.
When she isn’t working on dimensional pieces she is searching for interesting materials or traveling the world in search of inspiration.
