E.L. Whitley

As a surrealist I use the element of design to weave compositions based on my dreams, visions and imagination. My paintings chronicle my life's journey. In short my art is a way of keeping dairy. I paint objects as I think them, not necessarily as I see them. My imagination in the highest kite I can fly.
