Creating artwork that is intricately detailed has always been a passion of Ellie’s, and so when she discovered papercutting in 2010 she was instantly in love with the medium. She also loves to work in illustration, animation and printmaking, making complex images inspired by natural patterns and forms which she combines with the joy she finds in ornamental patterns.
Born in Cambridge but now living in Ulverston, Ellie studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London before going on to complete an MA in Art as Environment at Manchester Metropolitan University. Throughout this time she has worked as a freelance artist and creative workshop facilitator. As an illustrator Ellie has been commissioned to create images both for small businesses and within the community arts sector. She has also worked as an animator for theatre and for educational charities.
