Art in the Mansion ~ Elaine Graham
August 3 - August 16
Born in Vancouver, Canada, I have been painting the sea and landscapes of my native Canada since an early age, graduating with a BA in Fine Art from the University of Toronto and winning numerous awards as an up-and-coming graduate artist. In 2000 I emigrated to West Wales, attracted by the raw, wild nature of its land and seascapes and the ever changing patterns of light, wind and weather. My mission is to connect to the power, essence and energy of this ancient land and capture it in images that will inspire others.
Currently I exhibit in several galleries in Wales including Pure Art (Milford Haven), King Steet Gallery (Carmarthen), Oriel Bont (Aberystwyth) and Nick Holly Gallery (Swansea) with one-woman shows in various venues including Aberglasney Gardens.
My work has been shown at the Venice Biennale in 2011 (as part of a Welsh project organised by a Swansea gallery), and in collections around the world including Canada, Australia, the US, Holland and Germany.
