Meet Ellen

Ellen has always been passionate about art and has forever found herself fascinated and enthused by its intricacies. She is a quirky and bubbly person who is keen for a friendly chat and is quick to make people feel welcomed.

Over the years, she has completed her advanced diploma in Fine Arts, and more recently her degree in Natural History Illustration. Throughout her studies, she has acquired a good eye for minute details, skills and knowledge in colour theory, and a wide understanding of compositional layout.

Ellen’s framing Journey began 5+ years ago. Since then, she completed her apprenticeship in picture framing. As a practicing artist herself, Ellen has an appreciation of what the right frame can do for an artwork.

Outside of framing, Ellen is often found immersed in her own artmaking practice, participating in creative workshops, visiting quaint cafes, or out in nature, exploring and admiring what it has to offer.
