Ella artist

At sixth form college, where I studied Fine Art, my favourite place was in front of the easel in the art room.   At age nineteen I received an award from HRH Prince Charles as a prize-winning artist in the Young Artists’ Britain competition.  I have never been far from a paintbrush since.

Oil paints have long been my preferred medium but I also love working in acrylics and mixed media, creating artworks that are full of character.

Since becoming a parent, my work has very much been influenced by the little people in my life, and my paintings often include children or images of childhood.  I paint a lot for children too.

From beautiful portraits of children and toys, to bright, stylised, personalised pictures of animals, my paintings are designed to make you (or your little ones) smile.

I consider all commissions so if you like my style please do get in touch to chat through ideas.



“Go to Ella she is amazing!  I asked Ella to paint my old panda from her original picture called ‘Best Friends’ with a bunny.  She has captured him on canvas so well and I am over the moon with the end result.  When I showed my sister the picture she knew straight away that it was Panda.”
