Born in 1989 in Staffordshire, Elliot showed a passion for wildlife and art from a young age. Influenced by the animal sculptures of Rembrandt Bugatti and Antoine- Louis Barye, he focuses on capturing the life and grace of the subject, concentrating on their key features but allowing spontaneity to make up the main body of the sculpture. Largely self-taught, Elliot takes inspiration from the countryside, initially in Staffordshire and Derbyshire, Elliot now travels the country in order to observe and photograph animals in their natural habitat. Alongside lifesize sculptures, he also scales down large animals creating more manageable sculptures. Focusing his art on wild and farm life, Elliot's clay sculptures are then cast in bronze or resin. He works closely the team of skilled craftsmen at the bronze foundry in Melton Mowbray where his work is cast using the ancient Lost wax process.
All of Elliot's sculptures are a small limited editions with each sculpture taking several weeks to complete. He also welcomes commissions.
