Introductions in order?
My name is usually a great conversation starter, so let's start there. It's a family name, pronounced e-leeta, I'm an artist and business owner with work strewn along the East Coast both in private and public settings, a few of which are The University of South Carolina, Raleigh's Center for the Performing Arts and Durham's GSK Pharmaceuticals.
My passion is to share my inspiration and bring the enjoyment of the creative process closer into everyday life though Team Building, Art parties and Kids' Workshops.
Visits to my home studio are welcome by appointment.
About what I do!
'Art for Events' is the arts service I offer to the N.C.Triangle area. I absolutely love bringing the joy of art and art-making closer into every day life in all sorts of fun group functions! "Live painting' during wedding receptions is one of my all time favorite ways ! Wedding guests just love watching a painting actually unfold right in front of them while enjoying their meal! The painting is finished at the end of the reception and becomes a treasured memento the couple can cherish in their home for years to come!
Art Parties is another way I love bringing art out to the people! Birthday parties, friend 'get-togethers' or church group gatherings are other settings where I serve up some creative fun for guests.
Businesses also enjoy using my guided art projects for creative alternatives to traditional 'team building' sessions. I'm always enamored to see the rejuvenating affect that the act of creating has on the human psyche! Guests and participants always seem to leave with a bit of a broader smile and a lighter step than on their arrival!
