Jan Elaine Soriano

Artist based in Calgary, Alberta 

I'm Elaine, a self-taught artist who was born and raised in the Philippines. I am a full-time Ph.D. neuroscience student at the University of Calgary. In my spare time I paint and take care of my house plants.

My collection consists of artworks inspired by tropical landscape depicted in vibrant colours. I developed a passion for collecting plants and it has become the source of my motif and style. I am intrigued by the wide variation of plants. As my collection grows, my art style will constantly change and adapt to the diverse nature and seasonality of plants.
