Originally from the Scottish Borders Ellie’s inspiration comes from the natural world and from contemporary society.
People … their stories, their emotions and their impact on the world … intrigue and touch her deeply. She has a strong sense of community, believing that how people live together is very important.
The shape, form and complexity of living organisms and societies, universes and atoms,and their ceaseless movement fascinate her. She finds the digital world a wonderful tool and takes her camera everywhere.
She work mainly in mixed media (inks and plaster are a favourite) and fabrics. Her work is often on a large scale, suitable for larger spaces.
