2013 Participating Artists, Studio 13
This husband and wife team are both talented artists using different mediums. Bill is a larger format photographer, working in black and white. Ellen is a painter, using bright colorful, impressionistic strokes. Together they create beautiful images that provide a window to their vision of the world.
Ellen's paintings reflect her delight in color. She explored various mediums from watercolor, pastel, acrylic and she feels she has found her voice through oils. Her current passion is to express the moment through painting in the Plein Air tradition. Her work reflects the light, atmosphere, and color of the moment. All of her paintings are distinctive for their bold, bright colors.
Bill expresses himself in subtle shades of black and white. He is a larger format photographer who has turned his passion for the camera and nature into beautiful works of art. His images range from landscapes to still life. His photography is still printed by hand, one image at a time. These images demonstrate beauty through soft tones and variety of light and shadow. Throughout his extensive travels, Bill has photographed ancient ruins, breathtaking scenery and intimate close-ups of everyday scenes in nature and architecture.
