Elaine Camlin grew up in Wagga Wagga, moving to Canberra to study printmaking at the ANU School of Art before returning home to embrace a regional practice with strong roots in the community.
With a continuing exploration of tangible and imaginative organic objects, Elaine's work is informed by personal memories and moments. Intrigued with found objects often forgotten, overlooked and decaying, our relational engagement with these forms speaks to the vast possibilities our natural environment has to offer.
Elaine is an active member of the printmaking community, regularly participating and facilitating print exchanges and projects, including the Pandemic Print Exchange (PPE) with 38 artists working in isolation across Australia, and Internationally. Elaine was a finalist in the Northern Beaches Artist Book Prize and Peebles Print Prize and exhibits regularly across Australia.
