At young age Canadian artist Ellen Jewett was already obsessed in taking shapes of three dimensional forms. Ellen is a lover of life and the mechanisms of both art and nature leading her to make a phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures. To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life; biological narratives, emotions, movement, balance and observations about life’s subtleties and overtures. Her aesthetic ranges from the hyper-real, to the surreal,fantastic, and the grotesque. Ellen’s works are incomparable, resulting from her creativeness are her strange and unique sculptures.
In 2007 Ellen completed her post-secondary education with honours in Biological Anthropology and Fine Art from McMaster University.
Ellen’s creative process is truly her own, she enjoys making and engineering original material combinations to suit her needs.
She has always worked by the principle that materials should conform to her vision, rather than confine her vision to the limits of a material.
