Prop maker, artist, collector and craftsperson


I'm an artist, craftsperson and theatrical prop maker, based in the south east of England. Ellen original sells a selection of high quality prints and cards of my wildlife illustrations.

Nature and art are my two passions in life. Athough I spend most of my time crating weird and wonderful props for the stage, it had been years since I picked up a pencil to draw the things I love! And then one day I decided to sketch my mother's German pointer as a birthday gift, and then I was asked my cousin's horse, and then my friend's Labrador...

And all of a sudden I was receiving requests from left right and centre to create portraits of people's best furry friends, and so EllenOriginal began!

I am still a theatrical prop maker, but every other second I have is spent capturing animals, be it wild or domestic, on paper. It brings me so much joy, and I hope my pieces do the same for my customers!
