Lynda Elliott is a life long New Hampshire resident. As a young girl
she loved to draw, and at the age of ten, she was encouraged to take
private lessons with a local artist. Her studies were in pencil,
charcoal, pastel and pen & ink. The subjects were still life and
figure, some nudes. Her photography began with a Graphics course in
High School. She went on to earn an Associates degree in Graphic Arts.
The degree led her to a field in the printing industry. Her successful
twelve-year career as a cameraman and journeyman stripper involved
film processes and assembly in the pre-press department for various
commercial printers. Computer technology gradually crept in and
eliminated the use of film along with her position. Lynda decided to
enroll in a Certificate Program for Graphic Design. She took an
interest in digital photography, merging her newly acquired computer
skills to create colorful and unique digital art. Many of her
creations are abstract and unhindered by limitations, due to the new
medium. The results have been numerous awards, encouragement from
other artists, solo and group exhibits, TV and newspaper interviews,
sales of her artwork and recent acceptance into the League of New

My current medium is digital photography & digital art. The digital
art is created, by applying various filters and techniques in Adobe
Photoshop, to my original digital photographs. My subjects of interest
vary greatly and are sometimes unusual and colorful, or simple and
beautiful. My work includes self-portraits that are transformed into
fantasy characters and most recently, vibrant, abstract art. I prefer
natural lighting and dramatic contrast in my work. My moods,
interests, experiences and imagination influence my creations.
Experience has taught me that beauty has a lot to do with attitude and
perception. I feel privileged when I can recognize it, whether it's in
front of me, or in my mind. I love getting lost in expressing what is
already there, unseen or dreamed.
“If surrealist Salvador Dali and photographer Ansel Adams went on a
psychedelic spree, the result might remind you of the edgy work of
Manchester digital artist Lynda Elliott.” The New Hampshire Sunday
News Manchester, NH By Carol Robidoux
“One of the most striking aspects of Elliott's work, whether it's
posed shots, candid shots, or abstract digital imagery, is her unique
perspective. Her unusual camera angles, attention to light, and
slightly askew composition make her work eye grabbing.” Hippo Press
