Stephen Elliot (b. 1943)  Artworks >>

Stephen C. Elliott was born in 1943 in Des Moines, Iowa. Steve started painting when he was about two years old with his father. After moving from Iowa, Elliott attended Marquette University in Milwaukee. From there he went to medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Elliot worked as an emergency room doctor for 16 years. During his medical career, Stephen was painting as well but primarily in watercolor. For several years in the late 1970's, he placed in the top fifty submissions of the Federal Duck Stamp competition. To date in his career, he has had two works included in the top one hundred of the Arts In The Park exhibition. Stephen moved to Loveland, Colorado in 1988 and began painting full time. At this point, Elliott began painting primarily in oil. He still enjoys medicine on an intellectual level rather than the toil of the career on a physical level. "Art is a language and it differs from spoken language in that it is received by the brain. In art you produce the image and the brain creates the words. Art communicates from an entirely different place. I seriously paint for me." Reference: altermann.com
