Eleni Tsami is creating eerie and dreamlike paintings

My name is Eleni, and I am an artist painting scenes with an otherworldliness about them.

I have always had a love for the fantastic in art, but I like to linger in the more nebulous territory of myth and dream. From that I draw glimpses of imaginings, sometimes more eerie and ominous, sometimes no more apparent than a feeling invoked by colour and light.
Central to such a setting are the characters I paint. They are almost all women: warriors, sages, heroines in their own right, defiant in their struggle. To paint each is to take a full emotional journey.



Most of my work is done digitally. In the past few months I have started working more with watercolours. I find that in going between the two media each informs the use of the other in the handling of texture and colour. This is something I would like to explore further.



At the same time, I am in the process of making art my full time work. I am hoping that this Patreon page will be able to supplement that.

By pledging, you will be supporting me in this creative endeavour, for which you have my thanks! In addition to that, you will have better access to my creative process, both technical and conceptual.
