About the Artist
Raised in Alaska and living in Austin Texas.Eli's paintings tell stories of living together, working together, eating together, the sacredness of food, friendship, family and the cycle of life and death.
My paintings are made with oil and mixed media. I love to add spray paint, acrylic, paper, metal leaf, fabric, lace, ribbons, gemstones, sparkles, shells, crushed glass, beads, sand, mica, pearls and found objects. Large brushes and super thick paint create my messy, drippy, bright and metallic style.
