About

 

 

 

I am Elayna. A detail oriented introspective artist. I am a native Texan and a homebody. Keywords for I have never lived outside of Texas. Painting is my game and watercolor with a splash of gouache is my medium. I like thick expensive paper and can probably guess the weight of anything you mail me. 

I am here to help people feel inspired—claaaasic I know. Let me rephrase. I want to activate a part of your mind that you haven’t used since childhood. I want you to feel whimsical and hopeful. I want to trigger an emotion of lightheartedness, a bit of anticipation and a desire to see more and more. I want you to finish looking at a piece of my art and then feel the immediate need to look at it again.
