Hello, I'm Tamara Eliot, the daughter of Duval
Eliot. This website is a work of love and admiration for my
mother, one of California's great artists.
for my mother and her work has grown since she died in 1990.
While curating her art, I discover lost classics I had never
seen. Many of her greatest artistic accomplishments were
lost, stolen or drowned in floods. I have now recovered much
of that work. This website is a living testimonial to her
friends and associates told me: "There was no one like her,
as a person, an artist and a teacher."
Tamara and Duval in 1979
with Jae Carmichael, December 2002, in front of the former
Pasadena School of Fine Art
was constantly searching ... she experimented, she didn't get
stuck in her ways,' Carmichael said. There's an easy answer
to anyone who questions Eliot's lack of a signature style.
"Just refer them to Picasso he went through one phase after
another ... Her paintings hold up against anyone else's paintings
of the period.'
