Day 23: Marcy Ellis

Artist Bio:

Through delicate lines of ink and watercolor, Marcy Ellis draws inspiration from flora, the natural world, and the female form. A childhood split between rural agriculture and a suburban planned community set in the open desert, Marcy was immersed in the beauty and simplicity of nature at a young age. Currently residing in Tucson, Arizona, Marcy teaches Elementary Art and freelances full time. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and a Bachelors of Fine Art in Art Education from the University of Arizona. You can find and purchase her work and view more of her process on Instagram @marcyellis

Artist Statement:

From earth to sky, we are connected to a central life force. My current body of work explores the female figure, rooted in her connection to landscape, life/death cycles and the natural world. The Goddess, the Sister, the Mother of all forms of life. The root to self rejuvenation of spirit and space, she is the transformative representation of fragile beauty. Rendered through illustration and color, these connections are explored.
