With a lifelong love of painting and sketching, George Elliott was one of those rare individuals who actually pursued his dream. Following 28 years as graphic artist with Outboard Marine Corporation, George opened his own studio and Peterborough has been the richer for it.
Through hundreds of pen-and-ink sketches, George served as area chronicler, with his series on historical, and heritage buildings. As well, he taught his craft to aspiring artists as part of the Continuing Education Program at Fleming College for over 20 years. He illustrated a number of books, and his generous donation of many pieces of his work has benefited countless local charities and causes.
Mr. Elliott passed away in July, 2020 at the age of 81.
