Elaine Cox


Elaine Cox, who studied at Saint Martins School of Art, is a painter and jeweller whose work is inspired by landscape.

Elaine uses mixed media in her paintings. Avoiding conventional representation she creates multi-layered collages of richly textured surfaces which explore the effects of time, the elements and human activity upon the land to alter, reveal and transform.

In 2011 Elaine was awarded an Arts Council grant to fund exhibiting at the New York Museum of Arts & Design and to create a new body of work called 'Contours & Grids: Landscapes for Wearing', inspired by the New York cityscape.
