Each of us carries wealth that has nothing to do with money.

The wealth that is worth more than any other is the gift of Love. We all have a supply on hand every day of the week, no matter how bad things get, no matter how desperate we become, no matter if we fall on the hardest of times we still have what is in our hearts.

Love; it is the most precious part of being a human being and we are forgetting that.

This gift works in a way that is different than other currencies. With money, the more you spend the less you have, with Love the more you spend the more you get back and the supply is endless.

In a world that is focused on the almighty dollar, we are harming nature and losing our humanity. Our world, where we rush from one place to the next, from one thing to the next, acquiring & consuming more than we need, acting in a form of desperation on behalf of money, is all for what? Time is not money, and in the end what we have can't be taken with us. In the end money is a bad investment.

Love isn't like that, you don't have to run after it to find it, you don't have to hoard it to keep it, it is a living work of art written on the human heart. If we can look at the world as a place to invest the Love that we have in our hearts, the world and every living creature becomes the bank that we can invest in and the more we invest the more we get back.

What kind of world would it be if instead of chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow we instead listened to the still quiet voice that tells us to simply invest what we have living in our hearts, invest it in the bank of Love.

Elaine was born in Edmonton, Alberta and began performing and singing as a child. Her endless energy and need for a stage was often answered by her mother locking her in her room which didn’t deter Lainey from attending Grant MacEwan College in the theatre arts and dance program.

This new and larger venue not only gave her the opportunity to perform on stage and dance without knocking things over but it also likely contributed to saving her parent's marriage.

After graduating from Grant MacEwan, Elaine moved to Montreal where she became a member of the Actors Studio. This connection landed her several parts in American films as well as some local professional theatre productions. In turn, this led to a European tour with a theatre group that entertained troops overseas. Upon her return to Quebec, Elaine continued to act and perform in local theatre and film. Exhaustion and family eventually pulled her back home to Edmonton where she continued to do commercial work and soon landed a lead actress part in the film Sentimental Reasons. The smell of ocean air eventually called her to the British Columbia coast where she continued to work as an actress and got a supporting role in an American/Canadian film called Honeymoon while at the same time continuing to do commercials.

Over the years Elaine developed a special relationship to the Dominican Republic where she has become a Dominicanado. This adoption has led her to perform on many occasions with local professional musicians in a number of diverse local venues and events including television. Locally Elaine has rededicated herself to singing, writing and performing as a chanteuse in local venues. Her recently released album When It Rains, recorded in Victoria, has received an enthusiastic response locally and internationally.

Currently, her second and this time all original album has been recorded by some of the most respected musicians on the west coast and is due for release in 2019. (Note: Songs being released as singles over the next few months, with first release January 7, 2019). Elaine is now developing and rehearsing a show for this new album which will be presented live in the Fall of 2019.
