“I am compelled to work from the trees, skies, lakes and streams in their endless variations. I don’t try to recreate nature (even Monet said he never got it right) or attempt storytelling. Instead, the works are simplifications and exaggerations of nature."

Although his paintings loosely reference photographs and plein-air sketches, they refuse to exist within the confines of already prescribed images. Rather, they stand independent of any specific place or time, the fulfilled pursuits of the artist’s visual and intellectual explorations. Elliott wields color boldly, creating sizzling, vibrant shapes that are at once kinetic and placid, grounded in unifying illumination, and focused compositions.”

Commissions / Workshops and Mentoring


Ken has produced a large number of commissions for the private and public sectors and typically has ongoing commissions throughout the year. Often the commission idea comes from a current or sold oil with the client interested in that motif but in a new way, color, or size. 


To commission a painting contact Ken by email to set up a time to discuss your project. Allow 6-8 weeks for completion.


4 one-on-one Online Mentoring Sessions are offered on a four month schedule that works for you. We are all looking to to improve as artists but how do we go about it?

How can we be more successful artistically and professionally?


In this course you will be given the tools for creating better artworks, opening your creativity and establishing a career focus. Sessions are open to all skill levels, media, and styles.


The $600 course will consist of one hour each month over 4 months on a video call. During the length of this course you will be working on your art using strategies for improvement and artistic success.
