From Ellie's Hand

About me … …

Ellie the Artist

A Borderer, a shepherd’s daughter, a city dweller, an adventurer, an experimenter and insatiably curious.  

From a background in Community Arts, I love exploring new ideas and my work constantly changes.

I currently work mainly in textiles, with a strong influence from historical/fantasy costume.  I have recently discovered the joys of spinning, and have started creating my own yarns from the raw fleece to incorporate into my work.  

Professional Skills

I am a qualified, experienced Community Education Worker and also have an HND in Contemporary Arts Practice. 

I am gradually spending more time focusing on my own artwork, rather than working with others to develop their skills.

I am also a specialist in fine crochet, and I regularly deliver courses and conduct workshops.  Details are posted here and also on my facebook page
