The Seattle Pike Place Market and the ferry boats were my favorite places while growing up in Seattle. I loved the colors, sounds, smells, and all the people doing interesting things. Little has changed. I’ve found markets from Greece to Thailand; and Malaysia to India.
 
Traveling and painting has been a great gift in my life. I have lived and taught in several universities and colleges in the United States, Canada, and Asia. I spent a wonderful year painting on the beaches and villages on the islands of Greece and in Cyprus.

I’ve been greatly influenced by the works and friendship of the American painter and Zen Buddhist priest, Richard Kirsten Daiensai whose advice enabled me to spend my vacation and weekends painting in the temples of Japan with my daughter, Lorrie Elliott.
 
Jenny Elliott has three adult children and lives in Des Moines, Washington.
