Elspeth’s creativity knows no boundaries. She describes her artistic style as vibrant, loving, original, and ethereal. Her aim is that her artwork has a positive affect on people by connecting them to their inner child: their authentic self and to bring some vibrancy to their lives. For Elspeth, colour is a way to express and celebrate the colour’s of her soul and spirit. She hopes that her artwork can encourage others to do the same. The use of dots and circles in her artwork come not only from a space of meditation but also because circle is the symbol of unity and infinity. Her artworks in their true form are something to witness because of their tactile nature and somewhat 3d form.
