Welcome to my website. I love art and I love making art. I work in acrylic, watercolor and mixed media. Each medium brings on the promise of being challenging, fulfilling and sometimes very frustrating. It is always an adventure to start with a new acrylic paint, crayon, pastel stick, watercolor or electronic device - the list goes on and on. I hope you will enjoy your stay. Stay as long as you like and if you have any questions about prices and sizes of my work, don't hesitate to contact me.
Born in 1945, Elaine Mills moved from her desert home in Las Vegas to Kansas City in 1980. She has studied art all of her adult life by visiting museums and galleries on three continents and by reading books by and about artists. On numerous occasions she has traveled across the country to see the work of specific artists. Hofmann, Krasner, Kandinsky, Matisse, Joan Mitchell, Rothko, and Van Gogh are among her favorite artists. After years of being a bystander in the art world, Elaine took the plunge and started painting in 1995. She studied with Philomene Bennett for 10 years and has exhibited extensively throughout the Kansas City Area, California, Nebraska, and Kansas. In addition she is the author of The War on Women, Taos: Land of Magic, Florentine Fragments, and collaborated on the Crack in the Egg with Jane Booth and Deborah Wilson.
