The Artist Says:


My work is inspired by nature. I aim to infuse my paintings with truth as well as my own artistic interpretations. I want the end result to be pleasing to the eye, a culmination of my technique and the subject matter I have chosen. I choose my subject matter for a variety of reasons: to explore color, form, for an overall theme or mood, and  to express our relationship to nature.




Biography


JOSH ELLIOTT"A successful painting, to me, represents nature's truth filtered through the artist"Born in Great Falls, MT in 1973, Josh Elliott and his family now live in Helena. Elliott draws his inspiration from nature and learned the importance of painting outdoors from his father, wildlife artist Steve Elliott. Josh believes that we were made to appreciate beauty, and he feels his work is a celebration of beauty and truth. Although being true to reality is important to Josh, he aims for creating “art”, something interpretive, something more than a good rendering, something of himself.SHOWS
