The Work

Elaine Forrest

Objects and materials that have had another life inspire me. I am influenced by what I see and use everyday. I elevate the commonplace by infusing beauty and nobility into the often overlooked world of commercial products.


I work in oil, acrylic, watercolor and collage. Reconstructed packaging becomes pop art inspired cultural commentary. Repurposing the seemingly common objects of everyday life inspires my craft and allows each piece to tell a new story.


My multimedia work finds a home in galleries around the world and across all digital and social media platforms.
