Artist Showcase - Ellen Jewett


Ellen was born in Markham Ontario, Canada and raised among snails. She took to shaping three dimensional forms naturally and obsessively at a young age. To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life; biological narratives, emotions, movement, balance and observations about life's subtleties and overtures. Her aesthetic ranges from the hyper-real, to the surreal, fantastic, and the grotesque. Ellen's creative process is truly her own, she enjoys making and engineering original material combinations to suit her needs. It is in this way that she produces mixed media sculptures that achieve an otherworldly quality.

In 2007 Ellen completed her post-secondary education with honours in Biological Anthropology and Fine Art from McMaster University. She hit the ground running and became a full-time studio artist, never looking back. Ellen has since gained many other qualifications, continually strengthening her knowledge and enthusiasm for her two passions; sculpture and animal behaviour.

Currently Ellen lives in Guelph, Ontario. When working in her studio Ellen enjoys the company of her menagerie, drinking heroic quantities of coffee and listening to audio books, online university courses and, when she wants to give her brain a rest, the food network. She finds this immersion in thought and ideas helps to create the depth and spontaneity in her sculptural narratives. Ellen also points out that her studio space needn't be confined by walls since, when the ice melts, you'll most likely find her working out her garden, a log cabin or just somewhere in the woods.
