About Elinore Eaton
I am a focused and passionate artist, always exploring, studying, creating. My life’s passion is making art that brings new perspectives to universal truths and stories, myth, and lore. Although we all have unique experiences and stories, we are not alone, and sometimes art can remind us of our shared but unique place in the world.
I create art and stories with both digital and traditional mediums that include graphite, charcoal, watercolor, ink, and acrylic, as well as digital paint and programs. I'm not afraid to blend mediums and break rules to get end results with striking imagery and emotional impact. I like to explore subjects of myth, folklore, spirit, fantasy, horror, and magic. I am always curious to expand on subjects and style, and no project is too big or too small.
I have been a professional freelance illustrator and graphic designer for over ten years in both commercial and fine art industries, holding a BFA from San Francisco State University, with studies from CCA and Miami Ad School, as well as years of self taught and mentored study.
