Welcome to my project, where I share free, original art with the community. I'm Elaine, an artist based in Portland, Oregon, and I've been creating and leaving my art around town and where I travel since early 2023.

A community art project by Elaine Schimek

I love the idea of people finding my art unexpectedly and being able to enjoy it for free. My paintings are all one-of-a-kind, and I hope they bring a little bit of joy to those who find them. If you find one of my paintings, please take it home and enjoy it!


You can also share a photo of your newfound art on social media using the hashtag #findfreeart -or- post a comment on instagram. I love seeing where my paintings end up!


"Because Art Supplies Ain't Cheap!"

Patrons will receive exclusive rewards, such as:

  • Free prints of my art

Join me in spreading free art to the public!

 (If you can't afford to become a patron, that's okay! You can still support my project by following me on social media and sharing my art with your friends and family. Thank you for your support!)
