Ellen, a native of the cosmopolitan city of San Francisco, is an artist whose creativity sparks from the beautiful nuances nestled within the depths of life itself. Raised in a Roman Catholic family where her father was a police officer and mom a homemaker, Ellen learned early on about commitment and responsibility, being the eldest of four young siblings. Her initiation into the world of art was as sublime as her artwork, beginning with her winning a special acknowledgment at the tender age of seven. Ellen's groundbreaking puppet creation made its place into a children’s museum, setting the stage for her artistic journey. Influenced by her mother's artistic flair, which remained largely unexplored, Ellen took a liking towards abstract art. Despite her passion for expressing her emotions on canvas, the conventional life led her to the role of a homemaker and mom. But her love for art never ceased to exist and her yearning for artistic exploration would occasionally surface, manifesting in spurts of creativity. Along the way, she found mentors in Susan Sarback, Robert Burridge, Peggi Kroll Roberts, Pamela Caughey, Adele Sypesteyn and Nick Wilton of Art2Life, further polishing her intuitive abilities. Driven by her undying love for painting, Ellen soon embarked on a journey towards self-discovery through her art. Her creations portray a profound connection to the abstract art world, and she believes that every stroke she paints delves deeper into her soul, revealing a facet of her purpose. Creating abstract art for Ellen is a process of giving and taking, of adding strokes and erasing marks till she achieves a composition that resounds with her inner state. Her choice of colors has evolved over time with blues, aquas, reds, oranges, and greens currently dominating her palette, reflecting the splendor of her new home, Florida. Beneath these beautiful hues are layers of emotions, history, and wisdom that make Ellen's art unique. Most of her paintings are laden with history, both literally and figuratively, enveloped in layers of collage, emerging and receding into the colorful chaos of her canvases. Ellen's work has been heavily influenced by eminent artists like Joan Mitchell, Richard Diebenkorn, and Mark Rothko, and her work has gained wide recognition globally. She is an esteemed member of the renowned Art Center Sarasota and Art Center Manatee.
