"Elayne brings enormous creativity, enthusiasm, grit, determination and grace to the work that she does and this has been of immense value to the work that we do with the JCSP programme.
She has a terrific work ethic and has an authentic approach to her work in the class room which is underpinned by her natural, and learned, artistic skill and pedagogical approach."
- Poetry Ireland Education Officer
"Elayne is a superb communicator, with a creative, playful and responsive approach to her work and it's delivery."
- Artist and lecturer Gareth Kennedy
"Elayne is a committed and compassionate fighter for art and education – her performance style owes more than a little to her boxing prowess - and one of the most distinctive and creditable artists and people I've ever met."
