Featured Artist for January 2023 – Eleni Manolakos

Bedford Nova Scotia based artist Eleni Manolakos works out of her home studio primarily with oils.

The mesmerizing views overlooking the Bedford Basin, memories of her trips to Europe, and the everyday beauty of life inspire her to recreate and reinterpret those moments of awe on canvas.

Eleni’s success in both group and solo shows in Ontario and Nova Scotia has led to her artwork being included in collections in Canada, and internationally. She credits her mentor artist Mary Therese Carmichael with encouraging her to just ‘paint what you see’.

Eleni is represented in Halifax by 14 Bells Fine Art Gallery.
