Eloise is a Sydney-come-Blue Mountains-based photographic artist and museums and galleries worker.

Her camera-originals and prints are developed in a disused scullery in her home. Eloise’s work limns femininity and the female as image-maker as well as image-subject. She is inspirited by Sally Mann and early Australian female photographers (such as Lillian Louise Pitts, Ruth Hollick, Olive Cotton and Jill Crossley), personal and women’s experiences and the past and its relationship to the present. Eloise has exhibited at Gaffa Gallery, Sydney, the Long Division Gallery, Schoolhouse Studios, Melbourne as well as on The Planthunter blog.

Eloise loves the history and historic processes of photography, and she has worked with and researched many photographic collections as well as other cultural materials (including clothing and textile collections).

Eloise is experienced at both traditional and historic processes of photography by way of Ellie Young of Gold Street Studios, as well as by way of a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) (Sydney College of the Arts, the University of Sydney). She has worked on the exhibitions Points of Focus: Historic photographs from the Pacific (the Macleay Museum) and Capturing Nature: Early photography at the Australian Museum 1857-1893 (the Australian Museum), has authored significance statements and Australian Dress Register entries (the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences), and has curated contemporary art exhibitions (Lyttleton Stores Cooperative). Eloise also has a Master of Museum Studies (the University of Sydney).
