Prior to St. Louis, Elliott was centered in Brooklyn, New York where she was a studio assistant and fabricator, including working in the Matthew Barney studios. She uses casting materials and techniques as metaphors for society and the individual, her work poses questions about the seen and the unseen and the nature of viewing bodies.
