Working artist studio located in the heart of Liberty Station.
Hi - I'm Ellen Shorey and I began drawing and painting while serving in the Navy as a WAVE in the 1960s. I would describe my style as contemporary abstract. The layers of mixed media applications reflect the exploration of my feelings and moods. Using color, line, texture my work is always evolving. My art is my therapeutic refuge
I enjoy hearing people's perspectives when captivated by my paintings - different people see different things. I get my inspiration everywhere. When I walk down the street I'm usually drawn to patterns in nature and geometric shapes. I notice the sidewalk lines, fallen leaves, fences, cobblestones... I snap a picture of anything that inspires me that later could be transformed into a painting. Other times, I will start a painting with a "free spirit" and halfway through I will decide the direction I will go.
I am one of the dozens of working artists that call the ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station home. Wednesday through Sunday you can find me, paintbrush in hand, and my therapy dog Bobby by my side. We love visitors. Please come by and say hi anytime and see my latest artwork!
