Elaine Trei has been painting since 1968, halting her painting practice after the birth of her two daughters. She returned to painting again in 2002 and paints as often as possible. She loves color and enjoys trying new ideas. She loves paintings that are bright, alive with the feeling of movement, and provide happy thoughts to the viewer.
