Bio text
Elaine Starrett

Fine Artist/Instructor

Elaine Starrett began her career as an artist shortly after moving to Maui in 1991. While painting on location, she was approached by a tourist who asked to purchase her painting. So delighted and inspired by this event, she began her path towards the life of an artist.

Elaine was born in Palo Alto, CA, and received her education in art and graphic design at Foothill and De Anza Colleges in the San Francisco Bay Area. She worked as a graphic artist for several years, then moved to Carmel, CA where she worked and helped managed an art gallery for two years. Surrounded by art and beauty, she gained much knowledge and even more desire to paint herself. Having visited Maui several times and loving the warm weather, she accepted a job offered in a gallery, and Maui became her home for 19 years.

Elaine has exhibited and been a featured artist in many galleries on Maui, as well as displaying and selling her own work. Her work has been collected by people from all over the world and graced the walls of every state in our country. She was a member of The Lahaina Arts Society for over ten years and participated in the weekly, "Art in the Park" held under the legendary Banyon Tree. There she displayed, demonstrated and successfully sold her art. Additionally,
she gave weekly painting classes to guests of several resort hotels as well as privately.

Elaine paints in acrylics and oils and especially enjoys abstracts as well as her more painterly pieceswhich have a more dreamy quality.
She will be introducing this Fall, 2018, her new Wednesday afternoon class, “Visionary Scapes”, images that are dream-like in nature and evoke peace and tranquility. Her focus is color, mood, and feeling.

Elaine currently makes Palm Springs, CA her home. To contact Elaine, please email her at: ecstarr22@gmail.com, or call 808-298-9551.
