Elaine Tweedy
"Nature is resplendent in a kaleidoscope of colour, so often unseen by a chaotic world too busy to stop and 'look up'. If we fail to take notice of the wonder of our natural environment, I fear there will be less effort put forward to preserve this heritage for future generations. In my works, I try to emphasize bold rich colour.....To capture the vibrancy that my eyes see when I stroll through a garden, hike along a mountain trail, or look across a field of freshly mowed hay. Through my paintings it is my hope that others will be inspired to stop and 'look up'."

Elaine Tweedy is a gifted multimedia artist.  Her paintings combine semi-realism and impressionism. She is an artist of passion rather than of intellect.   Certain subjects call to Elaine because they resonate with her sensibility.  Growing up in rural Alberta, Elaine developed a deep feeling for space, color and light. This is apparent in her prairie and mountain paintings.  Inspired by her Grandmother, Elaine’s love of flora and fauna is not limited to garden and floral paintings but also incorporated into many of her landscape scenes.   Elaine also loves to paint intriguing street scenes that capture the history of urban settings.  As you view her works you will find your eyes will move over all the painting just as the painter’s eye moved across the subject.   Her use of bold rich color and strong brushstroke vibrate in her works.    With a penchant for painting ‘en plein-air’ Elaine becomes one with nature.  She has spent endless hours locating those special scenes and recreating them in perpetuity on canvas. Her travels have given her abundant resources and inspiration.

Elaine hails from a long line of family artistic talent.  Her genetic creativity has been further enriched through art studies with Eileen Raucher Sutton of ‘SuttonArt’ and other accomplished artists including Jerry Heine and Gisela Felsberg.  Elaine also studied art through an extension program at the University of Alberta.  She gained membership in the Federation of Canadian Artists in 1989 and holds a membership with the Visual Arts Alberta Association and the Alberta Community Art Clubs Association. This organization presented her with the ‘Jean Stephenson Scholarship Award’ in 1993.  In 1994 a reproduction of Elaine’s painting ‘Johnson Lake Looking West’ was chosen for inclusion in the publication of “24 Heroic Journey’s by author Dr. Shall Sinha.    A watercolor painting of Elaine’s “3 Pears and a Scarf II” won first prize in the advanced category in the 2003 Spruce Grove Open Art Competition. In 2005 Elaine was juried into the International d’art miniature exhibition in Levis, Quebec.  

Elaine’s participation in group and solo shows continues to expand.   Her works have rapidly gained recognition and are featured in a number of fine art galleries in Alberta.   Elaine’s paintings are included in many private, corporate and government collections in Canada and internationally.
