ABOUT THE ARTIST
Family , Music , and Love are inspirations for Elliott Hubbard's art creations. " The most enjoyable part of being an artist is taking something with virtually no substance and composing a creation that stimulates emotions as well as conversation. Art is not only powerful, it also allows us all to look beyond barriers and bring about new ideas."
Elliott, a self taught artist growing up in a small rural southern community, helped instill strong family values. He is the youngest of twelve adventurous and talented siblings. His father was a carpenter and his mother a homemaker who enjoys painting during her spare time. "My mother inspired me tremendously, but it wasn't until high school that I realized the impact of her exposing me to art at an early age." Painting since the age of 8 years old, Elliott received his first art award in the 6th grade, winning a summer scholarship to a Fine Art Gallery in Albany , Georgia. There Elliott had the opportunity to work with clay the entire summer. After that Elliott ventured into many other mediums including watercolors , pencil , pastels , acrylic paints as well as oil painting. "Looking back it's ironic that I would return to one of my first mediums, I guess that is why it feels so natural to work with clay." Elliott now resides in his home and studio in Fairburn , Georgia. He spends many hours hand building and creating original clay sculpture. All original creations. "I love art because it gives me the opportunity to share , to enlighten and enrich others. Sharing joy and happiness is the most precious gift we can give. I hope that my artwork lifts your spirit and bring about additional smiles."
