TERESA ELLIOTT WAS RAISED IN TEXAS, WHERE SHE NURTURED A CONNECTION WITH THE ANIMALS ON HER GRANDFATHER’S FARM. SHE RENDERS ALL HER SUBJECTS IN EXQUISITE DETAIL.
‘It became a place and time to know my subject in their entirety,’ she says. ‘The study of animal bodies as landscape and this connection to something limitless keeps the process forever interesting.’
Elliott’s work has been featured in numerous publications and she has received several prizes, including the 2009 and 2010 People’s Choice from Coors Western Art Exhibit in Denver.
