“Too many of us feel forgotten.
It is my calling to let you know you are not…”
A self-taught contemporary visual artist, Ellie is on a mission to bring about healing through her artwork. She has been creating meaningful art, and impacting lives since 1999.
Ellie was born in Havana, Cuba and has resided in Miami, Florida since 1962, when she left the island through Operation Pedro Pan. Her art conveys her inner passage through life – from her Caribbean roots where vibrancy and intensity played a major role, to a sense of gratitude and discovery along her artistic path.
She uses mixed media and collage, found objects and inspirational quotes, poems, or words in her art pieces which significantly highlight acknowledgment, acceptance and recognition. She paints with a purpose – offering a quiet voice for those in search of validation.
Ellie’s story is not unlike that of many…her insight and journey has led her to uniquely relate to those who collect her work. Her designs are personal, intimate and inspirational, and her path is clearly asserted and defined. There is a sense of essence and entity in her artistry…the whole of who she is.
