Ellen Jewett was born in Markham Ontario and has been creating three dimensional sculpting from a young age. She hand makes these incredible fantasy animal sculptures with mind boggling details using only fingers and paint brush.
"To Ellen sculpting has always been about life, biological narratives and cultural statements. The tedious hours of labor act as the mysterious foundation from which each sculptures' personality springs forth."
Artist's remakes on her work: "The process begins with a handmade metal armature over which light weight clay is sculpted. The painting is done with acrylic or oil pigments and the embedded eyes are glass or acrylic. When complete the whole piece is glazed to intensify color and strength.”
