Ellen's unmistakable artworks are an expression of her world: combining eye vibrating colour, cartoonish maximalist compositions and play-on-words. She is deeply inspired by the complexities and contradictions of our inner worlds, and nature at large.

A distinguised artist, Ellen has worked with Meta, Nike, Disney, Apple and many more. She is always up for a challenge and down for a collaboration.

You can usually find Ellen with one foot in reality and the rest of her body in her imagination.

Once you get me started, I won’t shut up about…
Octopuses. Don't laugh at me, they're really cool!
As a kid, I loved to draw…
Cartoon girls and animals, not much has changed!
My dream project would be…
Art directing and creating the animated visuals, lighting and stage sets for a touring band.
I love collaborating with…
Other artists. For example, the projects that Giulia Giannini McGauran and I collaborated on for Meta.
I do my best work when...
I'm thrown a challenge! Give me a weird brief, I love trying new things.
For inspiration, I look to...
animated movies and TV shows. There is so much magic and creativity and clever storytelling in animation.
I'd describe my style as...
an infinite cartoon multiverse.
