Considered by those who know her as a natural entrepreneur, Ellen set out on her own path as a career artist while still in high school, spending long summer weekends travelling to exhibitions. Ever the curious soul, while working as an artist Ellen has continued to study art and science respectively, most recently, through Haliburton School of the Arts and the University of Guelph. She has also accumulated certifications in other areas of personal intrigue, including applied animal behavior modification and crisis counseling. According to Ellen, it all informs her art; enriching the content of the unconscious narrative flow.

Today Ellen's work is achieving a vibrant internet presence making notable appearances on popular websites including Colossal, Reddit, Bored Panda, Ecology Global Network, American Crafters and many others. Her sculptures are being featured in public and private collections worldwide. Ellen is enthusiastically expanding her studio practice and forever striving to experiment and meet the demand for her time and work. Ellen currently produces from her small acreage on Vancouver Island in Canada. In her spare seconds Ellen enjoys hiking with her friends and dogs, cycling, kayaking, climbing, hunting wild plants and mushrooms, implementing permaculture principles to her homestead, 'upcycling' salvaged items, drinking coffee and feeding tiny birds. As her practice gains more international audience she looks forward to the opportunity to travel as much as her work does
