Ellie’s work explores different ways to understand and respond to the human body. She seeks to encapsulate movement and speed in her life drawings using black ink and charcoal. Her past
work has looked in detail at portraying flesh and body parts in paintings, inspired by the artist Jenny Saville.
Ellie loves experimenting with different drawing implements ranging from cotton buds, spatulas, biros, and twigs.
Ellie first began life drawing when she was growing up in Devon and has continued pursuing her passion for art and history of art ever since.
