Elaine Alibrandi, Copy Editing, Web Production
Elaine Alibrandi, a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art, exhibits her oil/mixed media paintings and installations at museums and galleries worldwide (see artworks).
After college, she worked as a freelance designer, but although the work was interesting, she was dissatisfied with having marketing take precedence over creativity, as it must in commercial design. After a brief detour, during which one of her clients held her hostage for several years in its commercial finance department, she escaped to pursue freelance writing, editing, and Web production, which offer hours flexible enough for her to focus on her art.
Elaine writes a wide range of material for several companies and publishing houses, from ads and radio spots to articles for art magazines and chapters in history and reference books. Her poetry has been published extensively in literary journals and poetry magazines.
She holds a black belt in karate from the Japan Karate Association in Brookline.
