Composing is the focus point of her finely detailed paintings, and the final result of her art works are due entirely to how it naturally composed itself.
“I love to create with the respect of human form, but no accepting the way things are I must formulate my own vision. Creating visions on canvas is a sense of relief for me. It allows me to interpret my feelings and share them with the world. My bodies of work communicates energy and mystery”. – Eliane Harvey
