My name is Ellie Dean, and I’m a self taught contemporary artist based in Hertfordshire, England. I’ve always loved drawing ever since I was young. I started out with graphite pencils, then I moved onto coloured pencils, and now I work in oil and acrylic paints. I’ve been painting seriously for the last three years. Painting has really helped me get through some difficult times with my health. Art is like my therapy the bright and bold colours bring positivity and uplifting energy to my life.
My works include a variety of different mediums such as acrylic, oil, gold leaf and textured paste. I’m always excited to try and experiment with new materials and techniques. I take a lot of inspiration from pop, street, realism and abstract art. Every artwork is carefully planned before I begin painting. I spend lots of hours digitally designing the perfect reference photo, so that each piece is as original and unique as possible.
I like my work to make a statement and have a visual impact that captures the viewers attention. I use bold colours, metallics and texture to create an energetic and distinctive look.
Thanks for taking the time to view and get to know my art. Please get in touch via the contacts page for any questions, or if you would like to discuss a commissioned piece. Thanks.
