UK-based artist Ellie Benton specializes in creating vibrant portraits of animals and people, using spontaneous strokes of saturated color to explore the energy and character of her subjects.
‘I work in a very instinctual way, not liking to plan too much what happens. I enjoy layering up colors in response to whatever strokes I have previously made on the canvas and seeing where it takes me.
My art is personal to me and I see it as a way of making sense of the chaos around me, allowing me to zone out of life and focus on the work in front of me.‘, the artist states.
