Born of German descent, Eloise Ernst's rustic paintings, prints, giclees, and canvas prints have the classic beauty and style of antiques. Her paintings and prints on canvas include landscapes from the Georgia, Texas, Wisconsin, and Alabama countryside. Eloise and her husband Steven - also German - live in Milwaukee, where they enjoy the German culture and celebrate their heritage.

Besides her work on canvas, Eloise also paints on old wood, combining history with art, as she incorporates antique jewelry, tools, hats, musical instruments or frames into her creations. Eloise has been featured in Lee Magazine and Sunshine Artist Magazine as well as in newspapers and on television and has won numerous awards.

An educator herself, Eloise was one of the illustrators for the I Can Say That book, winner of the Early Language Literacy Award. Eloise also illustrated the book Jesus is Born, written by Brenda O'Quinn and published by Synerge Books, found at http://www.synergebooks.com/ebook_jesusisborn.html .

Eloise paints fine art pieces that encompass gorgeous landscapes, flowers, cotton fields, floral arrangements, and other delicate and detailed works. Her playful side lends a hand in her creation of fun art - striped cats, fat pigs, big lipped fish, and curious cows. Eloise's art also includes images of Italy, Germany, France, Spain, and Mexico - down by the water, in a village, or near a field in the sunlight of the dawn. She also paints ships and beaches, trees and forests, and beautiful landscapes.

Faith is important to Eloise as an artist and she develops that belief system into many of her paintings: three crosses at Calvary, the cross on Pensacola Beach that overlooks the bay, children in the hands of God, the birth of Jesus Christ, and others.

Perhaps the most unusual of Eloise's artwork are her watercolor renditions of American Sign Language. As a teacher of the deaf and other children with special needs, Eloise has a heart for the art that reflects her love for those children. Her painting of the ASL "I Love You" sign is bright and bold, a wonderful piece for a hearing or deaf person to enjoy. The world is grand and love can be too. Eloise's work is just that: full of love and life.
