Artist Statement

Ellen Kalin began her artistic life with a set of Rapidograph pens and a love of creating detailed pen-and-ink drawings. Later, she fell head-over-heels for color and explored abstractionism as a way to express color intuitively. Later, she merged the two and, with landscape as her muse, now creates textural atmospheres and bright, layered canvases using subtractive and additive mixed-media.

Artist Bio

Ellen Kalin is a Maryland artist who produces vivid abstract acrylic/mixed media paintings on canvas. Her work is inspired by the natural landscape and by landscapes she finds in her imagination. A Maryland local, Ellen also makes jewelry based on her work, which she sells at art/craft fairs and trade shows.
