Ms. Eller is a well known artist who has been exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally and has been represented in multiple public and corporate collections across the United States and abroad. A native of New York, she first studied at the Arts Students League in New York City between 1951 and 1954 on a scholarship before traveling to Rome, Italy, to study at the Academy Belle Arte on a Fulbright fellowship.
