About Mimi & About Faces...


Thanks for your interest in About Faces. We have created this website to offer you the exclusive opportunity to have a beautiful memory of your favorite companion.

Mimi Elmore is an award winning fine artist that displays her work in galleries, museums, and shows across the country. She is best known for her photo realistic botanical paintings. A few years back, she painted her first pet portrait and the response has been amazing. Those who have received her portraits continue to rave about how happy they are to have one of Mimi's pet portraits.

Mimi lives in Lyons, Colorado, which is just inside the foothills of the Rocky Mountains about 14 miles northwest of Boulder. She works in her second floor studio overlooking city open space and the foothills. She is active in the local arts community. She has two dogs, Kit Carson, an English Setter, and Annie Oakley, an English Cocker Spaniel, plus four cats, Kimi, a Snowshoe, and three Tuxedos, Texas, Coco and Channel. Texas was rescued from an off ramp just east of Dallas when she was 4 weeks old, hence the name Texas. Our neighbor's Golden Retriever rescued Coco and Channel from one of our local parks when they were 4 weeks old, too. She has a cockatiel named Jackson, a toad named Zoey and a 25-gallon aquarium of Goldfish.

Mimi is an avid gardener, which is why she began her fine art career painting flowers. If you'd like to see more of her work, you can see her botanical paintings at galleries in Colorado and Texas or at Telluris Studios or FacebookShe recently started a landscaping company called Wild by Design to champion the cause of creating wildlife garden habitats one yard and garden at a time.

From Mimi... "Like all artists, my work is a reflection of everything I've learned and experienced. It's taken me years to perfect the process I use to get such artistic realism and luminescent colors in my originals. Whether I'm painting a flower or someone's loving companion, my desire is to open the door to its real beauty and inner radiance, so its soul can be revealed. Each piece of art that I paint is very time consuming, but I love every minute of it. I literally lose myself in the painting while I discover and capture its life essence."
