Ellen J. Minion
Ellen is in awe of God’s beautiful natural world, such as the colors, textures and shapes. The picturesque mountains, the seashore and flowers inspire her to paint.
Her style tends to be more impressionistic and she admires the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh, Monet, Manet and Mary Cassatt.
Ellen prefers watercolors for their fluidity and tranquil appearance. She also uses pastels because of their characteristics of vibrancy and color layering abilities.
