COVID Artist Support Pledge

I have joined other artists around the world in making the Artist Support Pledge. The goal of this worthy initiative is to help artists support themselves during the pandemic. Available work will be posted on my website, on my other social media platforms and on the Artist Support Pledge Instagram feed. As per the Pledge, the price of the posted work will not exceed $200 and I will make a $200 purchase from another participating artist for every $1000 worth of art I sell. Taking the pledge one step further I will also be donating $200 from every $1000 I sell to the International Rescue Committee, an organization working to contain the coronavirus outbreak around the world.

You can view available work below.  Purchase artwork through the PayPal link provided or email me to make other payment arrangements. Thank you for helping this effort during this difficult time. Stay well and in good spirits….Ellen

This hard-covered concertina book, made with archival materials and printed on fine watercolor paper, measures 6½ x 8½ inches when closed and 47½ x 8 ½ inches when opened to its full length. $200 including shipping. Limited edition of 25. Click on any image of book above to purchase. 

     Coral: Nature's Artistry - 4 part portfolio

Nature provides us with an abundance of beauty. Coral is amongst nature’s most artistic creations. In this collection I have included 4 captivating photos of the patterns, lines, forms and textures occurring naturally in coral. For me they are as lovely as any human drawn lines. Each photo in this collection is printed on archival watercolor paper and placed in an archival mat. The photos measure 5”x 7” while the matted piece measures 8”x10”. This collection is sold in a limited edition of 25. $200 including shipping for 4 matted photos. Click on any image of coral above to purchase the portfolio.
