A self-taught contemporary visual artist, Ellie is also a practicing certified Reiki Master; a certified 21st Century Energy Healer; a Certified Life Coach/ Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner; a Certified Reiki Crystal Healer; practices the Emotional Code and is completing her Bachelor’s in Holistic Health.
Ellie is on a mission to bring about relief through her healing techniques and artwork, focusing on family and ancestry matters; and has been creating sensitive and meaningful art…impacting lives, since 1999.
Born in Havana, Cuba, Ellie 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.
She uses mixed media and collage, photography, ceramics, found objects and inspirational words in her pieces which significantly highlight substance and presence. She also designs ancestral photographs on metal and canvas. Combining her artwork with energy healing, Ellie creates with a purpose – offering a quiet voice to those in search of familial renewal.
Ellie’s insight and journey have led her to uniquely relate to those who collect her work, and to passionately serve those in search of family bonding. Her designs are personal, intimate and moving. Her path is clearly defined, and there is a sense of essence and entity in her artistry and guidance…the whole of who she is.
