Elaine Rakowski (Goldman) is a Canadian artist who lives in Toronto. Her lifelong passion for art led to her studies at the Academy of Realist Art with Michael John Angel, Fernando Freitas, Ryan Gauvin and Juan Martinez.

Elaine’s art has been shown in various group exhibitions in Canada and is prominently displayed in private collections.  She has received international recognition from the Art Renewal Centre (2008/09 and 2009/10 as well as the Artist’s Magazine (2014).

Her recent artistic endeavours have been focused on landscape painting where she strives to convey the sense of awe elicited by nature’s infinite beauty and visual splendour.

Elaine is looking forward very much to her first solo show at the Art Square Gallery (334 Dundas Street West, Toronto from May 6 to June 3, 2019. Please click here for a map.
