Dorothy Ellen is an Optimist Living in Tennessee
Hi, I’m Dorothy Ellen. Growing up in rural TN it was easy to let my imagination run wild and I’m fortunate to still possess that same childlike creativity today. Translating my graphic design background into abstract fine art has been a rewarding challenge. There are life lessons to be gleaned by trusting one’s artistic gut without the safety net of an "Undo" button. With every painting and creation I'm learning more and more to trust myself and let that inner Muse steer.
I draw my inspiration from travel, landscapes, water, light, color and simple everyday truths. My goal is to translate these inspirations into art. Every piece is unique from large statement paintings with hand-poured resin accents, to seasonal color schemed mini paintings even all the way to gift-ready art prints and quirky glass mugs that gently remind us to pursue our happiness. It’s my hope that these pieces will not only bring some whimsy into someone's home but maybe brighten one's day as well.
