I had the pleasure of visiting the amazing painter, Ellen Rolli, in her studio a few weeks ago. I stumbled upon her work on Instagram and decided to reach out and introduce myself since I live right in the neighborhood where she creates all her beautiful work.
I spent the entire morning watching Ellen start with a blank canvas and work all the way to (what I thought was) a finished piece. We captured the process, the tools, and even created some new headshots for Ellen to use where she sees fit. I’ve always been so incredibly impressed with painters as artists, and I learned so much about Ellen’s process & the techniques she uses as an abstract painter.
Aside from painting & art, turns out we had so much more in common and a ton to talk about all morning. A spectacular day all around! Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.
