About Ellie

Hello! I'm Eliana – artist, wife, dog mom, and plant collector. I graduated from The University of Wisconsin-Stout with a B.F.A. in graphic design and a minor in studio art. While graphic design will always have a place in my heart, I have recently devoted my time to painting and illustration. There is not much on this earth that fills me with as much joy as pulling a perfect print or gliding my brush across a canvas.

While there are plenty of difficult days, I love seeing the sun shining through my window and dancing in my water jar, the the look on a friend’s face when they love what I’ve made, the smell of paint and fresh paper.

I have to remind myself daily that not everything I make has to be the best thing I’ve ever made. The messes are what help us to learn and grow. We would never succeed if we did not make mistakes. It is the practice and rhythm of trial and error which pushes us forward.

I still have much to learn, and I am looking forward to it.
