Ellie Contreras - Contemporary fine artist

Artist Ellie Contreras

Since graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in graphic design and illustration in 2001 I have worked as a free-lance graphic designer and illustrator while also taking on portrait commissions and developing my painting tecnique. in 2017 I decided it was time to focus more on my artistic career. This has been my first year practicing art professionally and I have already had several sales and great positive feedback, with paintings being exhibited extensively in the surrey area.

I create art with attitude for the independently minded and adventurous of spirit. My expressive, contemporary style achieves a balance between realism and abstraction to create a visual harmony of colour, composition and subject matter. I paint a range of subjects but I am particularly drawn to painting strong female characters. I paint in oil onto canvas, sometimes incorporating gold or silver leaf.

I work from a home studio in a beautiful little village surrounded by some of Surrey’s most stunning countryside but a short train ride away from London, which I visit very regularly for inspiration and to see exhibitions.
