MARGARET ELLIOTT

Born in Alabama, Margaret moved to Tennessee to pursue a B.F.A. in Studio Art from Belmont University. Although her inspiration and creative energy draw from her southern background and family, she now calls Nashville, TN home.


She says her style was inspired by one of her early paintings entitled "Odessa". What began as an experiment with blind contour drawing and paint evolved into a style uniquely hers. "I am often more intrigued with the sketch behind a great masterpiece than the finished painting; it's the process," Margaret remarks. Working with her original contour sketches, she uses them to build the foundation of the canvases and to highlight the finished paintings. Her process combines thin layers of acrylic wash with thick opaque layers applied with a pallet knife and detailed with fine line brushwork. What attracts her most to contour drawings is the energy that stays in the line. "While my subject matter and color pallet have become a personal visual vocabulary," she says, "the distortion of the lines imparts an invitation to the viewer to join the painting's conversation and story." Margaret has a range of subject matter including animals, still life, figures, and even bugs. Her paintings have an intimate feel to them due to precise marks and careful color blocking. Margaret's artwork has been exhibited in both private and public collections throughout the country.
