Contemporary figurative painter & Printmaker

Ellie has worked in the creative industry since graduating with a degree in graphic design and illustration in 2001. Throughout this time she dedicated herself to painting in her spare time honing her technique in portrait painting, drawing and exploring printmaking. in 2017 Ellie decided to take her art to the next level and now works as a professional artist while also working as a graphic designer/illustrator part time. She is developing two distinct areas of painting: lively expressive figurative paintings and contemporary paintings in her own distinctive illustrative style.

Ellie also has a love of printmaking which goes right back to her collage days, she has tried all different forms of printmaking but lino printing appeals to her the most. She likes the hands on craft element of carving the lino and it suits the strong graphic quality she aims to create. Ellie's illustrations for her prints reflect her desire to not let modern life crush people's dreams, creativity and freedom. She likes to imagine that people who buy her prints will feel uplifted by them or if they are given as a gift, a sentiment is passed on through them.
