I am Chelle Ellis, post thumbnail

a painter, printmaker, clay & metal sculptor, working in North Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee. I create monoprints and mixed media paintings, with found objects, paper, clay or metal sculptures added into the work. I paint primarily in acrylic on handmade paper, canvas and wood, focusing on simplified, repeated shapes.

I’m also a small metalsmith, so at times I make jewelry.

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

Occasionally, I work as an art instructor, as time and energy allow.  I have taught or assisted in teaching classes in printmaking, mixed media painting and metal-smithing.  If you are interested in my art instruction services, please view my CV with contact information.

Photos and inventory of my pieces are added to this website, when I have time to produce art. If you would like to commission a piece, please leave me a reply on this page or email me with those details.
