Ele has been fascinated by the drawn image and working with paper from a young age and continues to use pencil, watercolour and paper in her current work, including her intricate, bespoke lightboxes and her striking mixed media drawings.
Ele studied at Chelsea School of Art & Design and Newcastle University. She has gained a wealth of experience in the art world whilst working at the Art Fund and then for a London Art Consultancy. Ele went on to set up her own art studio whilst working as an art teacher at a leading London Prep School. She moved to Somerset with her young family in 2015 and now works from her studio in the beautiful Chew Valley countryside.
