Ellen Hart is a professional, award winning artist who is inspired by nature and her incredible imagination. Her paintings are mostly in acrylic but she also works with mixed media and is available to do wall murals. She enjoys incorporating 3-D elements into many of her paintings to engage the viewer and make her paintings come to life.
Ellen is a US Air Force Veteran with a background as a Professional Photographer, Graphic Artist and Website Designer/Builder. Ellen has always had a passion for creative pursuits. As a child this passion manifested itself through poetry, drawing and arts and crafts projects.
In addition to Fine Art Painting, Ellen’s creative pursuits as an adult have included poetry, writing, wood working, ceramics, tole painting, arts and crafts, paper mache, and creating stuffed animals.
She has had several of her poems published in the Anthology of American Poets and in 2008 Ellen published a self-help book for women for which she designed the cover.
In 2014 and 2015 Ellen’s art work was on display at the Pearland, Texas Chamber of Commerce, two Art Galleries in the Greater Houston Area and an Art Gallery in Tampa, Florida. Ellen’s art work is also displayed in the offices of the Governors of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Georgia and Florida.
Pure Healthy Eatery has purchased eight of her works of art for permanent display at The Woodlands, Texas and Spring, Texas locations of their restaurant.
Ellen has donated several of her paintings to All The King’s Horses Children’s Ranch in Benson, Arizona to be sold at auction as a fund raiser.
My work reflects my faith in God, love of nature, positive outlook on life and childlike exuberance. I choose bright colors to give my work a happy, uplifting quality. 3D elements are often incorporated into my paintings to further express my playful nature. My art as is a visual story. The viewer does not need to know my story to enjoy my art because exactly what that story is will be different for each viewer.
Acrylic is my main media with mixed media elements sometimes added to create a 3D effect. My signature is a raised, heart seal with the initial “E” in the center. I chose this as my signature because my family is descended from royalty and signatures originated from the king’s signet ring that was used to make a seal on official documents. My “seal” is affixed to my artwork to authenticate my work.
I have always had a passion for creative pursuits. I have a background as a Professional Photographer and Graphic Artist. I have recently taken an interest in Fine Art Painting. It is my desire to create beautiful works of art for my clients to enjoy in their homes and places of business. I look forward to creating that special work of art for you.
My paintings are primarily acrylic but I also work with wax based paint and mixed media.
