Commemorate a special life event with stunning, one-of-a-kind memento!
The depth and breadth of her experience makes her ideal for distilling the essence of each unique story, to give it joy and beauty. While her background includes a wealth of illustration and fine arts, it is her passion for visual art journaling that is the focal point of her work today.
This unique approach to journaling – with its full integration of words to images – has proved powerful and compelling. In 2010 she submitted a visual art journal into the Spirit of the Rogue competition (where it was judged against a wide range of artists working in diverse media) and it took first place.
Also making Elaine Frenett and ideal collaborator in producing special commissions is her success as a creative mentor and her innate empathy. She loves working with people.
This amalgamation of spirit and technical expertise is essential in crafting something both beautiful and true to a key life event (like retirements, birthdays, world travel, weddings, or graduations).
Commissions generally require 90 days advance time to allow for brainstorming, creative direction, and then the actual production; and may range from $300.00 to $3,000.00, depending on the scope; and final formats can range from multiple individual keepsake chapbooks, to wall art, to full journals.

Praise for Elaine’s Work
Elaine’s work is stunning … each page a work of art. With “illuminated” caps, at least on to a page, and a brilliant, loose watercolor paintings. The text was written in an attractive style, somewhere between calligraphy and well, I can’t describe it, but it really adds beauty to the page. She’s a real artist! I highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who journals—it would really open up lots of possibilities. – Irene Brady of NatureWorksPress.com
Elaine’s journals are poetry … the writing so well complemented by the visuals. I could feel the places. –Ratindra Das
Elaine took a special yet simple event, having lunch, and turned it into art. What she does is a magical blend of love and life, where words and images blend seamlessly. – Anne Lazarus
Lusciously inspiring … they have me convinced that this can be a great way to search out the meaning/content in our work. – Nancy Calhoun
Love how the words flow in and out of the images, like waves lapping at a shore.
