Acrylic on wood panel in hand made basswood frame. Sausalito, California 5.75 x 8" New. Ellen lives in Northern California in the waterfront community of Bel Marin Keyes, and maintains a studio in the historic ICB Building in Sausalito. Her work is boldly colored and richly textured, with multiple layers, scratched, sanded, carved into and drawn onto. Her vision is emotional, expressionistic, and positive; with brightly colored gestural brushwork, a strong sense of story and symbolism, and a passionate reference to the preservation of the landscape.
