Ellyn's goal is to employ humor when holding a subject up to her artistic scrutiny.
But, humor is as subjective as art and Ellyn's brand of humor has tended to be a polarizing factor in her art.
Having spent her childhood and college years honing her skills and striving to be technically correct, during the past 12 years she has tasked herself with unlearning those restrictive habits.
Ellyn strives to infuse more emotion and meaning in to each new painting she creates.
Her work is exemplified by a risk-taking vision, strong content, and colorful critiques of social norms.
