Worked in Advertising art and design Montessori and Waldorf Kindergarten Teacher
Through the Bridging Polarities through Art training Elaine discovered the gentle yet powerful transformative qualities of process art in her own life. It was a personal healing journey and opened doors for her own artistic work, moving into colour and drawing in new ways.
She is motivated in her work with others to assist them in making a deeper connection to their inner world and nature to explore their creativity. She is particularly inspired to use this non-judgemental way of working with adults who have no artistic experience.
Elaine has facilitated art sessions with adult groups incuding teachers to support them in their work with children; trainee teachers at the Centre for Creative Education and has worked with the vendors of The Big Issue as part of their Social Development programme for 11 years.
She runs adult group and individual sessions in Muizenberg and since Lockdown she has been working online.
She co-facilitated Bridging Polarties Trainings in 2007/2011/2018
