Elaine Mendez

New York-based and self-taught artist Elaine Méndez was greatly influenced by her mother’s use of textiles and father’s painting techniques. As she continuously discovered how colors and form could combine into 3D imaginative scenes, her first mixed media collages emerged and she began to exhibit them locally and to date has participated in more than 60 group and solo shows. Labeling her art as “Outsider Art”, she employed wood, glass, paper, ceramics and found objects into her early works.  Inspired by multiple experimentation and fellow mentoring, she continues to be a “life long learner” in the arts and shares in the pleasure of discussing her work with the public and offering children’s workshops in New York and Puerto Rico.
