Elaine Hughes


Made with love and a kooky imagination by me, Elaine Hughes.

I am an English artist living and working in the UK.
I established ‘Oh Golly Gosh’ in the Spring of 2009.
My background comes from textiles as I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Embroidery from MMU.

The collages are created using original vintage ephemera that I treat and manipulate using techniques I’ve developed over the years. I also use traditional techniques like appliqué and patchwork along with embellishment to ‘build’ my creations.

Every collage I create is a one-a-kind, piece of art. The papers I use are rare and very old. They range from knitting patterns and tram tickets from the 1950’s to maps and pages from old mathematical textbooks (to name but a few!)

The idea is to evoke a connection or recognition for the viewer. Seeing (or rather ‘reading’) the work they can identify with something about themselves or their own life experiences and memories.

A lot of time, care and love goes into each piece. Many are about my own memories of family holidays, encounters of landscapes viewed from a train window or my hopes and dreams of the future. Some are of stories I wish to tell. Through my artwork I always endeavour to put a smile on the viewers face and uplift them in some way.

I do hope you enjoy them.
Love Elaine
