Elaine Marie Lighthouse Artist
Most people have an affinity with lighthouses. Perhaps lighthouses appeal to us because they represent the best in mankind.
I endeavor through my lighthouse art to live out the motto of my alma mater, the University of Hawaii: “Maluna a’e o na lahul a pau ke ola ke kanaka” (Above all nations is humanity). Although there are over 18,000 lighthouses in the world. They all have one mission, saving lives.
I paint lighthouses to inspire, inform and educate. I recently had two solo exhibits in New York.
At the National Lighthouse Museum in Staten Island, the “Shattering the Lens” exhibit showcased female light keepers. “The Voices of Lighthouses” exhibit aboard the Lilac Lighthouse Tender in Manhattan featured iconic lighthouses in New York and around the world.
