Ellen Prebble enjoys detailed illustration, particularly of animals drawn from images she researches and brings into the studio. She is a confident drawer and uses her interest in characters from animations to develop her bold colours and style. She works independently in the studio and experiments with acrylic paint processes to create figurative narratives through painted images on a small scale over the weeks on both paper and canvas. Ellen has an enthusiastic approach to other artists work and enjoys visiting exhibitions, drawing ideas and contextualising her work.
Ellen was awarded Silver from Arts Award in 2019. See Ellen’s blog of her Arts Award journey here artsawardsproject.com.
