New to Spokane, I tend to call myself a diehard creative more than an ‘artist’. In the 1980’s I started a cottage industry in bas relief sculpture, both with wearable and wall art. Eventually I returned to my first love of painting, experimenting in oils and acrylic, primarily with color and composition. In those, my ‘Montana years’, I was raising my wonderful daughters as well as keeping up with the occasional life drawing class. I took classes at the U of M in printmaking, history and generally ‘expanding the mind’ as we used to say, and I still say it. Being a creative is a state of mind.

I am an artist, focusing on the intricacies of everyday life. What excites me most about what I make is that I’m on a path of discovery and exploration of paint as subject, object, material, and texture. The paintings have great depth, their surfaces have 100s of layers of paint. It wasn’t until I carved my first gouge that I was hooked. I was able to reveal the history of the painting and what was locked within. The piece had innocence and potential to be something heroic, and full of information and wonder. My love for exploring paint as object is still fueled by that single gouge, however I manipulate the pieces surface with new tools and applications.

I’m an acrylic and oil painter who creates art that is meant to generate a connection between the viewer and the work, and also encourages one to view the world from an altered perspective. My paintings are expressive and often surreal, with bold colors, flowing lines, and subjects that have an other worldly, emotional appeal. I graduated from EWU in 1998 with a BA in Education and a minor in art, but I’m mainly self-taught. I’ve been painting consistently for twenty two years and have been showing my work around Spokane since 2007.

Elise Beattie is a professional- full time painter who begins her pattern driven paintings with an adventurous pouring process. Pouring paint allows the artist the ultimate freedom of working wet into wet. The numerous poured washes create cloaks of intensifying value movement and mystery; thus continuously redirecting Beattie’s interpretation of reality. Using mixes of watercolors, acrylics and collage Elise creates images that combines a contemporary composition with a vivid imagination.

Take Big White Dog Photography on your next adventure in the Inland Northwest to document the beautiful bond you share with your dog. As a recovering journalist and newspaper reporter, I see your interaction in ways another photographer may not – the occasional glances into each other’s eyes, the stray scruff of the butt, the Magic Moment that tells me how much you love each other and how much each adventure matters. Let’s create wonderful memories together.
