Elaine creates bespoke textile characters and soft sculptures as well as working directly from drawings (predominantly by children but not exclusively) which she translates into constructed textile characters and forms representational of original artwork.
Each commissioned character piece is accompanied by a quirky story tag, detailing a few playful facts about their personality, likes and dislikes.
Elaine also works sensitivitly and compassionately with items of clothing and blankets, creating beautiful memory pieces that can be cherished forever, helping keep memories alive.
