Ellie Contreras - Contemporary fine artist

Contemporary figurative painter & Printmaker

Ellie has worked in the creative industry since graduating with a degree in graphic design and illustration in 2001. Throughout this time she dedicated herself to painting in her spare time perfecting the art of portrait painting, drawing and exploring printmaking. in 2017 Ellie decided to take her art to the next level and now works part time as a professional artist while also working as a graphic designer part time. She is developing two distinct areas of painting: lively expressive portraits and contemporary paintings in her own distinctive illustrative style which use mythology to represent her own experiences and ideas.

Her studio is near Guildford, a short train journey to London which she visits regularly for exhibitions and inspiration. Please get in touch if you would like to arrange a studio visit.
