Elaine Brady Smith

I’m a Pennsylvania native and graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in Graphic Arts.  I’ve studied for many years with regional and national artists in various mediums and have shown my work throughout the East Coast. My current focus is oil painting – Still Life, Botanical and Florals, and Classic Cars. I am currently working from my home studio on new work and daily painting studies. 

My paintings are primarily of still life. I love the simplicity of details and the focus of light on a single object. There is something extraordinary about the quiet space that is preserved in a painting of a single object or the organized arrangement of multiple objects.

I have come to believe that painting is essential to life…at least it is to my life!!! I can honestly say that painting is what I think about day after day and never grow weary of and it absolutely lifts me and gives me purpose. I believe painting is not just a God given talent, it is a skill that needs to be practiced and when practiced often and consistently, one is able to learn and excel to new levels with each painting.

As an artist, I believe an essential part of the creative process is to try out many ideas in order to arrive where we are meant to be creatively. My work undergoes transition on a daily basis as I move into new phases and ideas on how to present my subject matter. Art should be an enjoyable and satisfying experience as well as challenging to encourage growth towards excellence.”

I have many original paintings available, as well as limited edition prints of some of the works. Please inquire about availability of works and prints.
