About the artist:

PHLT Board Member Elaine Madere

The Pocono Pines artist, who grew up in the lush bayou country of Louisiana, was taught by her artist father to appreciate the beauty of nature. She uses oil and acrylic, in a realistic style, to capture the natural beauty of the Poconos. In addition to painting scenes of Lake Naomi where she lives in the woods, Madere also paints scenes of nature from her travels around the country and the world.

Only after she retired from a long career in telecommunications and information technology did Madere pursue her life-long interest in painting. Hailing from a family of successful artists, Madere always wanted to paint and knew there was an artist trapped deep down in her soul. However, she doubted her abilities, and battled time constraints of work and family life, so she never attempted painting. When she retired, a friend persuaded her to pick up a brush and take lessons. She has been painting ever since. Madere paints from nature but also takes commissions to paint pets, houses, and favorite landscapes and beach scenes.

Exhibit will be on display through the end of August 2021.

Visit the gallery Monday-Friday during regular business hours (open most days, as staffing allows).
