Born and raised in southern Louisiana, Elaine Waguespack is a CPA turned full-time mom turned artist. Her formal degree in accounting was acquired from Nicholls State University and she is self-taught as an artist. As her career shifted away from numbers and towards raising her two daughters, a lot of their time together consisted of creative and artistic outlets. Waguespack Art was conceived in 2016 with her daughter, Megan. They enjoy working alongside each other or together on pieces. Elaine’s favorite medium is acrylic with a love for texture. Inspired by everyday colors and things in God’s creations, her paintings range from abstract to religious to landscapes.
Initially, Elaine began painting seriously in order to furnish the walls of their home. With positive feedback from others, this led to painting gifts for family and friends and now to commissions and festivals. Her main focus is to reflect God’s beauty and to bring joy and happiness to others through her paintings.
She participates in local events and markets and was chosen as the 2017 Acadia Music Fest Poster artist.
Elaine is married to Mike Waguespack, and they have two daughters, Megan and Sydney.
