Artist Statement

Elaine Shepherd Rexdale

Elaine Rexdale officially began her love affair with painting by secretly responding to a "Draw Me" newspaper ad when she was nine years old.   However, most of her art has come later in life.


Her thirty-five years involvement in early childhood education has probably influenced her art more than any other experience. The morning painting sessions begin with fresh coffee followed by bold lines and intense colors on the canvas. I She uses black and white sparingly as highlights, then adds free movement brush strokes and detail as appropriate. There are no favorite tools; everything is a possibility to use to create a painting. Sometimes she follows artistic rules, and sometimes she breaks the rules. She does what the canvas asks to create a story or feeling.


Elaine was born and reared in Rock Island, Illinois. Life took her to an army base in Louisiana, a large hospital in New York, and volunteer work in Florida, only to return home in the Midwest. She has participated in multiple juried group exhibitions as well has several solo art exhibits.


Her art is regularly exhibited throughout the Midwest and held in private collections in twelve States.


When not at the easel she is playing competitive billiards.
