Eliane Ambrose studied intensively under the tutelage of international artist Dennis Blalock. Eliane works strictly in oil - in her words, "I want to master one medium and one medium only!" She has held eleven one-woman shows. Eliane paints realistically or in the style of the impressionists from still life to en plein air. At this time she has turned to abstraction and allowed the canvas to speak to her inner sense.
She has won numerous awards for her paintings with juried exhibitions, which includes the popular vote award at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown, MD. Eliane is a member of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. The Valley Art Association of Hagerstown, MD. The Greencastle Area Arts Council, Greencastle, PA. Franklin County Art Alliance and the Waynesboro Studio Club, both in PA.
Her work is on permanent display in many galleries and in private collections in Florida, California, Maryland, Virginia, New York, Pennsylvania and in her native France. Some of her work is on permanent display at F & M Trust Bank of Chambersburg, PA. You can also see her work at John McHenry Public House Restaurant and Taverne in Greencastle, PA.
Eliane is a member of the Spectrum Seven, a group of women artists. "As an Artist and international poet, my paintings are as diversified as my life. My work is an unconscious connection between God and nature. I allow the paintings to speak to my inner sense and feelings while using color to intensify what I feel."
