REVIEWS

THE STAR OF CHRISTMAS

"Delicate, detailed illustrations…fun-filled enumeration of what children often love best about Christmas…watercolor illustrations are full of texture and will attract children, who will find new surprises on each page.”  Kirkus Discoveries

"THE STAR OF CHRISTMAS is an exquisite book that will delight parents and children alike. Lavish, richly colored illustrations invite the reader into the mystery and magic of Christmas while a simply told tale provides a profound insight into the ancient and sacred meaning of the holiday it is sure to be a favorite for years to come, plan on giving The Star of Christmas to all of your treasured friends and family.” –Last-Minute Christmas, Woman’s Day Special Interest Publications

2007 PARK AVE SUMMER ART FEST POSTER

"Elaine has captured the fun and funky feeling of Park Ave during festival days in an impressionistic Parisian style. Everyone sees the festival through their own eyes, and Elaine’s light hearted, sophisticated interpretation captures the feeling of Park Avenue today –before, during, and after the festival!”

"She designed posters for the Lilac festival & Park Ave Festival in the same year…in very different styles. I don’t know that any artist has ever scored this “festival double.” –Hank Shaw
