Elliot Coatney
Boone, North Carolina

Elliot Coatney’s love of art began as a child when his grandmother trained him in drawing and painting. He finds inspiration in simple scenes, such as the way light plays on water. Many of his paintings also reference the work of other artists and serve as a sort of chronicle of travels, interests and influences. With each work, he hopes to keep a lighthearted mood while using contrast and saturated colors. “I aim for my art to be beautiful, but with a rough and almost childlike edge,” he explains. In fact, his two children keep him busy when he’s away from paint and canvas. Fun fact: he attended nine different schools from 1st grade through college.

Aerial Landscape III just arrived at my home in NYC. It is a beautiful piece. I love it so much I bought Aerial Landscape I as a companion piece. Fantastic work and gorgeous reminders of my southern roots!

We just bought a house in Augusta and we're turning into a private gallery with gardens. We've received incredible comment on our Elliot Coatney paniting. It's definitely one of our favorites.

This is now in my entry, and I like how this piece reminds me of how it feels to walk through an art gallery. It's very calming. Even more depth in person. Keep up the good work!
