Elaine and Andy Alfoldy are both graduates from the Vancouver School of Art, now Emily Carr University of Art. They are both professional artists practicing in Creston, BC since 1974 and are known for their fabric and paper batiks that they mail to stores and galleries across Canada for sale. They are inspired by the Kootenay surroundings which can be seen on their lovely watercolours on tissue and on traditional watercolour papers, acrylics and collages on canvas.
