The Artist Says:

There is a painting everywhere one looks, capturing it is the challenge that keeps the artist's brushes flying.


Moving to Montana from Washington state in 1970 Elaine Locati claims Montana her home. Her paintings reflect her deep appreciation for the diverse beauty she has discovered as she wanders the areas throughout south west Montana searching for painting reference.  Working in oil with a limited palette she has experienced success through simplification of both color and composition. Over the past several years Elaine has been painting children.  Watching children playing and interacting with their world, she courageously followed her heart to capture through her paintings the wonder she detected in their innocent imaginings.  A recent series called: Children at Play keeps her at her easel watching those little people come to life.   Elaine has studied with numerous well known artists and is involved with artist groups who paint on location around the state of Montana.  She has also joined Plein Air groups in Scottsdale to paint on location in and around the Phoenix area. She has a degree in Advertising Design from Western Montana College/University of Montana in Dillon, MT.
