Ellen Elizabeth was raised in Thousand Oaks, CA and has always loved to draw! From sketching out of drawing books, to painting murals in her closet, art has always been a part of her life.
Ellen started to take serious interest in art when she was accepted into the Advanced Placement Art class at Thousand Oaks High School. The training from this class helped her prepare to move to the East Coast, where she attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Ellen majored in Communication Design and specialized in illustration. She was also lucky enough to get an internship in the illustration department at “The New Yorker” Magazine in New York City. This exciting internship exposed her to the commercial art world.
Being a Southern California girl, Ellen decided to move back to sunny California after getting her Bachelors Degree in Communication Design. She now does graphic and web design for Point Broadcasting LLC radio stations, as well as freelance design. Although she loves doing graphic design, her heart is in illustration and painting.
Ellen Elizabeth is an award winning artist who focuses on mix media and some rendered pieces. She is currently a member of the Westlake Village Art Guild and SCBWI. You can see her work at local Art Shows and Galleries.
