is a sculptor who works in clay, mixed media and welded metal. Many of his pieces are figurative. In his latest body of work, he created 3-dimensional tattoo pieces, some with religious overtones. Elliott enjoys creating works with an interactive component and many of his sculptures are kinetic. Elliott was born in 1941 in Fort Worth, Texas, as both a military brat and a preacher's kid. His family moved within the rural south approximately every two years and he subsequently attended a total of eighteen different schools before finishing high school. Elliott attended Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, then spent four years in the United States Air Force serving in Okinawa and North Africa.
Elliott moved to Stratford, Ontario, in 1969 to work at the Stratford Festival as a props builder. He explored hundreds of different media through his theatre work and some of these techniques—such as clay modeling, casting and welding—have transferred into his personal work.
Elliott’s work is currently in private and public collections across Canada and the United States.
