Ken Elliott is a Colorado artist working in a variety of media: oils, pastels, monotypes, monoprints and collages, with a career in the art business that spans over 30 years. His gradual emergence as a fine artist began when he first became a picture framer, then worked alongside a restorer, became an art dealer, and eventually in the 80s, began to draw and paint. Ken begins each painting with bold strokes, adding more color than may be typically found in Nature and ultimately inviting us to discover landscapes in which “all of Nature is altered, perfected, abstracted…” His elegant contemporary landscapes evolve as part of a non-linear creative process––the artist typically has a number of works in progress in the studio. Ken’s work is represented in numerous private and corporate collections and galleries throughout the United State. “When you run out of variations to an idea, you can go back to Nature where all the ideas and colors for a lifetime are always waiting for you.
