Paper Artist & Product Designer

Elaine Joy Roach crafts beautiful papers into small treasures. Her art practice explores emotions and nature by creating imagery using various papers’ tones, textures and translucencies. She works predominantly with paper, but includes hand-weaving and woodworking among her passions. Elaine is an emerging artist, and an award-winning designer from OCADU.
