Color is Ellen’s driving force. Trained as a serigrapher, she was used to laying down flat, clear, bright color. When she transitioned into metalsmithing, she discovered epoxy resin & its array of colors: she was hooked! Balance, shape, color & line play together to form a cohesive design. Since finding the resin, she has added colored pencils, paint, enamel, patinas, & found objects to her arsenal of color tools. Copper & silver remain her metals of choice.
