Elaine Gavin



My name is Elaine Gavin and I’m a native of Ballynacally. In my ‘day job’ I am a primary school teacher in Lissycasey N.S.. and I hope in some way I can inspire every child I teach to find their own talent and see the world through artist’s eyes. There is such colour and beauty in the world if we can only see it.
‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up’ Pablo Picasso. . . .

When painting, I work mainly with acrylics on canvas but prefer using oils when painting portraits. I enjoy painting local landscapes, buildings and portraits but I have a particular love of painting pet portraits! I accept commissions and can be contacted using my details below. I look forward to hearing from you.
