About the artist Ellen Trott
“As a kid I grew up on the coast down South Western Australia with a love of the ocean and its natural beauty, that I would say defiantly reflects in my work as an artist.
In high school I found my flair for painting portraits and was always encouraged to ‘never put the paintbrush down’.
It was when I moved to Cairns, where the rainforest that meets the sea, and I met my wonderful mentor Di Sant, that I had found my passion for nudes and watercolours, and have been able to truly capture my own style of painting. I furthered my education at JCU University taking live drawing classes, charcoals and some photography workshops.
I have exhibited in many of my works in the Margret river wine region including the Margret River Creative Emergence festival, a solo exhibition at Sugar Man Studios. I have also had my work showcased at Happs Pottery in Yalingup.
Through the expression of colour I would say my paintings come alive. They have a natural flow that I form playing with the water and brushstrokes which create depth through the layers of paint. The result is a realistic magical impression of something that is not quite out of the ordinary.”
