ABOUT

Megan Elliott is a multi-media artist working across painting, film and installation. Elliott seeks to uncover personal truths through examining the myths and stories perpetuated about womanhood, desire and sexuality. By reimagining her own narratives, Elliott aims to question which parts of herself are authentic and which are simply performed.
