Eva Ellis, a watercolor and mixed media artist, creates artwork inspired by nature, music and items of her everyday. She also enjoys creating abstract work. The fact is her curiosity takes her art in many directions, which she loves. She frequently turns her images into a digital print that may appear as a pattern on fabric, apparel, and home furnishings.
Besides playing the organ (life-long) and viola da gamba (beginner status) she practices yoga daily, and enjoys the mindfulness that comes through these activities. Her art is her way of expressing the joy that comes from noticing this beautiful world in which we live and move and have our being.
Ellis was honored to have a solo show at the Jackson Dinsdale Art Center of Hastings College, Hastings, Nebraska in the summer of 2019. Her painting Off Kilter was selected for the Ohio Watercolor Society Silver Medal in Watercolor Ohio 2017, the 40th Annual Juried Exhibition. Her paintings have also been juried into Watercolor Ohio 2016 (Traveling Show), 2014, 2013 when she was honored to receive the Doug Pasek Memorial Award, and Watercolor Ohio 2012. She received 2nd Place in the Group Ten Gallery’s 3rd Annual Juried Art Show in 2016 and has had paintings accepted into juried exhibitions at the Fairmount Center for the Arts, Chagrin Falls Valley Art Center and Group Ten Gallery, Kent. She participated as a member of the cooperative Group Ten Gallery from 2016 to 2018. She is represented by Imagery Fine Arts in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
She photographed religious buildings in Cleveland for her husband’s book A Guide to Greater Cleveland’s Sacred Landmarks (Kent State Press, 2012).
