Born and raised on the prairies, Winnipeg artist Elaine Dilay has always been creative and enjoys painting as an outlet through every season of life. Wife and mother of 3 young boys she has a passion to add beauty & interest through her work. She comes from a family rich in the arts – with actors, graphic and interior designers, fine artists, musicians, and performers.
Elaine creates original abstract pieces that are dramatic both in texture and color. She draws inspiration from the world of interior design, fashion and her love for drama. Each painting is unique and can stand alone to be a show stopper in your space.
While most of her art career has been spent creating acrylic abstracts she fell in love with resin art over a year ago and simply can’t get enough of the glossy medium. Her current collections are a blend of acrylics, epoxy resin and mixed media. Elaine gravitates towards a bold pallet and incorporates metallics in most of her work.
Elaine sells her work to art collectors, interior design stores and luxury home builders. She also offers unique products with her resin application on round art, table tops and wooden home wares.

KAL BARTESKI is an artist. She works with private clients, global brands and philanthropic organizations around the world. A published author, award winning designer, sought after script artist, a TEDx speaker and a winner of a Women Entrepreneur of the Year Award. She is an artist living her dream in Canada’s winter wonderland. When she isn’t using her iconic and recognizable brush script to create typographic art or visiting polar bears in Canada’s North – she is busy speaking about art, inspiration and creativity.
And maybe a little magic.
I create one of a kind hanging wall tapestries, made with bright vibrant colours and bold patterns, with emphasis on texture. To create these works, I use a variety of sources for my textiles—including gifts from friends, inherited vintage, and repurposed local fibers.
The inspiration for these unique weavings come from photos taken here in Manitoba, as well as my travels.
