Elaine makes no disticinction between projects and commissioned work which includes portraits, fashion (which she loves) and "cover it" assignments such as Ladies Rooms (for Metropolis).
Her book, SPARKS Portraits 1985-1995, includes commissions for major publications.
Vogue, Vanity Fair, the New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, Metropolis, and many other U.S., French, Japanese and Canadian publications have commissioned her work. Magazine editors and Art Directors have included her work in their books: Rolling Stone Women In Rock, Kim Hastreiter Geoffrey Beene, An American Rebel among others.
