Winner of the SSICA Ceramics Biennial Peoples Choice Award, and a large scale Ceramic Installation for VanCity, Ellis sculpts incredibly textured surfaces with clay. Grappling with humanity through natures lens, Ellis’s hope filled work resonates care rooted in possibility. Growing up in BC, her favourite muse is nature, where beauty is found in brokenness. Burned out trees, and layers of peeling bark, bear a common thread of imperfection. Her art embraces the raw and flawed. Artistry and technique inform the intuitive processes of her multidisciplinary art practice.
She has created public, private, and corporate commissions. Her artwork has decorated television sets. She has painted for live audiences in auditoriums, a stadium, University and T.V. Her art has been published in journals, magazines and books, including the National Book for Clay week, The Crafted Dish, and a book of one hundred Vancouver creatives called, WeMakeStuff.
