Art has been a lifelong passion for Elaine Shumaker, though she didn’t always realize it.
Shumaker, a Florida native, moved to Rockwood earlier this year to continue her dream of a owning an art and design business. She specializes in murals, faux finishes and visual illusion.
After beginning her career as a children’s wear designer for eight years, Shumaker went back to college to become a dental hygienist. She spent the next two decades working with a tooth brush instead of a paint brush.
