A native of New York City, Ellen spends her summers working in her studio in Cheshire, Connecticut. Her paintings are in the collections of The University of New Mexico; Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York (H.I.P); Hospital of Special Care, New Britain CT; Odyssey Foundation NY; and the Pfizer Corporation, NY. As part of the United States Department of State, "Art in Embassies Program", her works are currently on view at the United States Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. These watercolor and mixed media paintings reflect a convergence of traditional landscape painting and modernist pictorial exploration. "I am a painter who uses layers of color to suggest real objects and places. I wish to convey a sense of space and flowing movement in the landscape. The paintings are composed of areas of color that flow into each other and flood the entire sheet of paper."
