Eleanor was born in Falkirk and grew up in Philadelphia. She received her BFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, studying between Philadelphia and Rome, Italy. She received her MFA in Painting and Drawing from West Dean College, University of Sussex. She lives and works in London.
She works with elements of painting and photography, painting into and on top of photographs transferred onto stretched canvas, exploring concepts and emotions that can't be explained by words but can be investigated visually. Everyday life is haunted by framents of dreams and hints of other realities. Memories can slip away quickly as the waking world takes over- but what traces have they left?
