Laura Ellis – Artist’s Statement
My paintings explore the meeting of earth, water and sky, and the dynamics of forms in space. Inspired by the compelling exchange between art, nature and spirit, I engage in an intuitive process of evoking and distilling images, staying open to where the painting takes me.
