This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Elliott is a designer's painter and likes the challenge of doing custom murals and paintings. His Hibiscus Restaurant project in North Palm Beach, Fl. for Carleton Varney was a testimony of transformation he created with a stroke of a brush. This Everglades mural was a 35-foot high wall and 45-feet in length. Varney also commissioned him to do the Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia as well as Peters Island and the St. Croix Palm Mural, Rookwood restaurant in Ohio and the Trump Tower with clouds and a Koi Pond in a bathroom. The Carlyle Hotel had him restore the famous Bemmelman and the Erte murals with additional panels in the style of the former artists. Custom painting entails having a designer ask for a certain size and subject matter and color palette. Elliott's work is found in private home and public and commercial buildings.

The Hibiscus was somewhat on the idea of the Famous Copacana in New York City which he restored with new murals and designed three times due to their various moves of establishment in 30 years. The President Hotel and the Sheraton Hotel in New York also had a somewhat tropical design. The Minotaur Restaurant at the Wyndham Hotel featured King Minos'throne room (2,600 B.C.) from the Island of Crete. For the famous Chef David Ruggerio the Le Chantilly Restaurant and Nonna's at the Galleria. The Irving Hotel in Southampton, New York featured a Casino Library, Rousseau Dining Room and waterlily murals. Lattanzi was done as a Etruscan antique looking eatery. Blackbeards Castle, and Louisenhoj Castle in St.Thomas and Halycon Cove in Antiqua. Chez Josephine N.Y. and Mortimers,the Gaslight Club and the McAlpin Hotel and Patron Marissa Beck's Grill 21 in New York .

Some of the hightlights were Joan Crawford who Carleton Varney introduced me to became my sponsor and patron. Ambassador Gallery show with Jack Palance without "push ups" and Tippi Hedren.

Huntinghartford who asked me to escort the Duke and Duchess of Windsor to Salvador Dali's one man show on Columbus Circle in New York City. Along with their two pugs...who I ended up carrying around the exhibition and drank my Martini and ate all the food in sight. It was a grand evening to say the least.

And my recent appointment to the United Nations as a designer and artist/ muralist for various projects they have in mind.

My art work has been published in "House Beautiful" and I have also been referenced in "Art Business News" and "Collectors Editions". "Interior Design Magazine" published a two-page layout on my art as well as "Decor" on my one man show at Bloomingdales where I was resident artist for nearly three years.

Joan Crawford, Dina Merrill and Cliff Robertson along with the U.S. Olympic Ski Team and Uniroyal hosted a huge show for me. I have had numerous shows for the Greek Tourist Board on Mykonos and Santorini as well as shows for St. Thomas, St. John and Antigua.

I paint mostly out of my studio in New York and my Boca Raton Gallery in Florida.
