About This Artist
My name is Ellen and I am an Artist and Illustrator based in New Jersey. I like dogs, houseplants, and drinking coffee. I read a LOT of books. I believe in challenging societal norms, equality and justice for all, and smashing the patriarchy.
I prefer not to “paint myself into a corner” when it comes to media, genre, or style - instead my studio practice has one continual focus across the entire body of work: colour! Instead of following the “Academia Mindset” of product-over-process, my work focuses heavily on the exploratory process of “making things.” The freedom I have found in purely experimenting with different media and focusing on the organic nature of creating brings me unparalleled joy. My art is about exploring the endless possibilities of a creative practice, and embracing the wild ride from initial imaginative vision to finished work of art!
