Intricate Handmade Fantasy Creatures by Ellen Jewett
Born in Markham, Canada, Ellen Jewett took to shaping three-dimensional forms naturally at a young age. To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life, biological narratives and cultural statements. The tedious hours of labor act as the mysterious foundation from which each of her sculptures’ personality springs forth.
In 2007 Ellen completed her post secondary education with a degree in Biological Anthropology and Art Critique from McMaster University. She had already started Creatures from El in 2005 and upon graduation plunged into it full-time.
Ellen continues to supplement her knowledge with professional courses and apprenticeships. She aspires to pursue graduate work in anthrozoology whilst maintaining her life as a studio artist.
Can we just have every superhero react like that?
"A spider bite… gave me abs…?"
"Being put in a barrel of radioactive waste… gave me abs…?"
"Watching my parents die…gave me abs?"
People think it’s like grades, sleep, or social life. But it’s really like Victorian hippo dance. I think the post is pretty clear about that.
