“Ellen's work transcends, even defies categorization. Obsessive, ritualistic, literary, witty, and often whimsical, it is by turns morbid and exuberant, a celebration of nature and of artifice. It is a fusion of techniques traditionally found in fashion and crafts with the materials and techniques of "fine art." With the grid as her underpinning compositional device, she reconciles her love of extravagance, fantasy, and spectacle with a strict design sense rooted very much in modernism.”
