Elyse Lord developed her artistic style around the oriental subject matter which she chose. Her art was inspired by both Chinese art and various aspects of oriental culture. Although Lord never actually travelled to China, she used Chinese paintings, embroideries and wall hangings as the sources for her images. The style which she created reflects both this source material and the influences of Art Deco and early 1920's fashion.

Lord actively exhibited from 1915 through 1939 in London with the Lefevre Gallery, who with London dealer Alexander Reid published her work. Her art was also shown at the Royal Academy of Arts, the RI, the Royal Scottish Academy, the Walker Art Gallery of Liverpool, and the Fine Art Society and Paris Salon, where she received a silver medal for color prints. In addition, her work was published in Masters of the Colour Print, Volume 1, 1927, with an introduction by Malcolm C. Salaman. In 1990 Cyril Gerber Fine Art of Glasgow held an exhibition of her work. Lord lived in Bexley, Kent.
