Elaine d’Esterre – visual artist

Welcome to my Studio/Gallery – a space where I create paintings, collage and etchings with a female and environment-friendly focus derived from wild places, deep time and archaeology.


Call of the Ocean 1, 2021, oil on board, 73 x 225 cm.



Line of Sight across the Dunes of Mungo, 2015, 15/15 V.E. intaglio, drypoint, collagraph and chine-colle, 26×43 cm print



I explore a possible parallel between Earth’s creative forces and artists’ and poets’ creative processes. These two parallel themes coalesce within the structure of my compositions where I use disguised symbolism, sourced from pre – Minoan art and artefacts, and from art history.

Landscape Presence, 2019, mixed media, 28×14 cm.
