This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Martha Elliott was a skilled painter of landscapes, still lifes, but she was best known as a portrait painter. Martha Elliott, with the birth name Martha Beggs, was born in 1892 in Birmingham, Alabama. The father of five, her father, Mr. John Beggs, was originally from an English iron-working family.

Martha remained in the Birmingham area where she attended Samford College and later married Vann S. Elliott. She gave birth to a daughter and worked as an elementary teacher while practicing painting and drawing in her spare time. It wasnt until she was thirty-eight years old that Elliott took her first art classes.

After studying briefly with Louise Cone in Birmingham she enrolled in summer portraiture classes in Elizabethtown, New York. Her career as an artist started in Birmingham and continued in New York City and Dallas, Texas. She was known to have traveled abroad to study with friends in Paris, France at the Academie Julien and La Chaumier. She continued to travel as an artist over the years between Europe, Hawaii, the United States and North Africa.

She worked as a commissioned artist and also held solo exhibitions in Montgomery, Alabama (1939), East Hampton, New York (1940), Dallas, Texas (1950) and Panama City, Florida (1960, 1973). Her works have been represented in many publications and is included in various permanent collections throughout the United States. She spent her later years painting in Panama City, Florida until her death in 1987.
