About the Artist
Eliane Markoff’s inspiration to become an artist began with the drawings of her twin daughters. At the age of 8, Rachel drew to pass the time during her many medical appointments in 1992. One drawing was of three flowers—one purple, one yellow and one red with green stems. To the top right was a bright yellow sun. Eliane painted Rachel’s masterpiece and the painting became the logo for The Rachel Molly Markoff Foundation, established by Eliane and her husband, Gary.
Eliane developed her unique artistic style that can best be described as a combination of impressionism and modernism. She is a member of the SOWA Artists Guild of Boston and has been featured in several magazines, including Perspective Magazine, The Boston Globe and L'Ellite Magazine. She is also featured in Bill Brett's book Inspirational Women of Boston.
One of Eliane’s signature pieces and undoubtedly the most recognized, is Flowers for Hope. In a field of flowers, the tulips face different directions, much like the different paths on which life takes us. The painting was Jury Selected by the WGBH Art Committee and it now hangs in the lobby of The Davis Companies.
Ms. Markoff's exhibits of her work most always include some pieces done by her daughter, Audrey Markoff. Audrey's work focuses on color and pattern. She creates her art pieces in small parts, letting her creativity direct the colors and pattern of the final piece of art. Audrey makes and cuts her own tile pieces to create beautiful mosaics.
She has also started to experiment with yarn and other materials. Audrey is a dog lover and a marketing professional. She received her MBA at Babson focusing on entrepreneurship and marketing and her BA from Skidmore College.
“I am honored to exhibit my art work with my daughter Audrey. She is my inspiration in every way.” says Eliane.
