Dragonflies - Monoprint
     Collagraph, acrylic, pencil & ink

I am Chelle Ellis, a printmaker, painter, clay & metal sculptor and art instructor working in North Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee.

With Danielle Sumler and my husband, Kenny Ellis, I curated the 2017 & 2018 Nasty Women Memphis Exhibits, the Memphis affiliate of NYC's Nasty Women Exhibition.

With Danielle, I also co-curated the Vital Ingredients Art Exhibit benefitting Dorothy Day House, from July 14-18, 2017.

I create monoprints and mixed media pieces, with found objects, paper, clay or metal sculptures added into the work. I paint primarily in acrylic on handmade paper, canvas and board.

If you would like to commission a piece, please email me with those details.

Photos and inventory of my pieces are added sparodically to my website, as I have time to update it.

Outside of commissioned pieces, I am taking a sabbatical from art at this time as we recently bought a Colonial Revival house, that dates earlier than 1883. Such an endeavor requires most of my time to restore, update and decorate. If you are interested in seeing that process, please visit www.SadiesOldHouse.com.

  Moosh, Again & Again

You may notice quite a few pieces with a little black and white dog or ginkgo leaves. That's because my Pekingese, Moosh, has been my muse since I got her in 2011.. and she has a ginkgo leaf shape on her head.
