“I seek to create places of enchantment for the heart. I work with channeled and dream images. When I begin, I feel as if I were inside a dark sphere with its many windows, each opening onto a unique universe which is embodied in my art. I aspire to create a body of work, totally my own, reflective of the realm of spirit.” — Elaine Langerman
