He uses mostly second-hand materials to depict nature and abstracted depictions of the body. Their work has been exhibited at Brunswick Street Gallery, the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, forty-five downstairs gallery, as well as published in journals such as Baby Teeth and Antithesis.

Elliott's Playground
Attractive Young Male

My University studies concentrated on theatrical Costume Design. After graduating and moving to Chicago I realized I found as much joy in creating the renderings as making wearable creations. These renderings transformed into free standing mixed media (mostly collage and watercolor) pieces. Tearing up paper was therapeutic.
