anne elliott

It is joy in transcendent natural environments that propels much of Elliott’s work. It started with the Grand Canyon. She has visited it three different times and each time it changed her life and her work. This began her travels to awe-inspiring sites that influenced her visual and her spiritual growth.

She has floated many rivers: - the Delaware, the Colorado, the Middle Fork and Main Salmon, the Green, the Yukon. And climbed many mountains: - Mt. Kenya and Kilimanjaro, and some 25 peaks in the Adirondacks. And trekked to base camps: - of K2 in Pakistan, Chomolhari in Bhutan, Rainier in Washington State, and Fitzroy in Patagonia. During a trip in the Zanskar Mountains of India, she became intrigued with the Buddhist monasteries she visited. This led to an interest in cave temples and she subsequently explored the caves at Dunhuang in China and Ajanta and Ellora in India.

She travels with her backpack full of sketchbooks and a camera. Wherever she goes defines her work for the next year.
