Elaine O'Neil Artwork at The Visitors Center

  • Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau (map)

Elaine says of her work, “My artistic process begins with the simple, pure memories of my childhood. I strive to conjure up the essence of those good times and capture them through whimsy and color, stitching them together with a sense of humor and delight.  My process begins by approaching each textile collage with a simple sketch. Then through snips and cuts, my scissors, like a painter’s brush,slowly reveal the image. Layer upon layer of fabric, stitched into place using a variety of colors and textures, brings the piece to life. In each piece I create, my hope is to evoke the kind of pleasure and delight of childhood, when life is simple, sweet, and full of endless possibilities.”
