Darlene Olivia McElroy is a contemporary mixed media artist, author, and educator. Trained as a painter and illustrator, she has an obsession for materials, passion for dreamlike imagery, and love of new technologies. Her work mixes richly textured surfaces, the old and new, and layers of color and images. Her process of working on a painting is like a puzzle wanting to be solved, moving the pieces until they resonate and giving new meaning to the elements by their juxtaposition. The experience is similar to reading Turkish coffee grounds - a story is revealed as one looks at the surface, through painted texture, color and imagery.

Darlene has been published in countless national and international magazines, appeared on HGTV’s That’s Clever, BlogTalk Radio’s Art & Soul show and been a guest blogger for several art companies.

In addition, she has had five art technique books published by North Light Books which have been translated into numerous languages.

Born and raised in Southern California, she is descended from an old New Mexico family of artists and storytellers. She lives in Santa Fe with her husband and three dogs that are the heartbeats under her worktable.
