A portrait of Samantha Ellis

Samantha Ellis

Samantha's fun and funky cityscapes feature intricate designs, vivid colours and a strong sense of energy and movement. Working mainly from a combination of photographic reference and her own vivid imagination, she may create a representation of a real place on occasion, while another image may combine scenes and play around with the composition; she herself describes this process as “letting loose and having fun".

Young and brimming with inspiration and energy, Samantha has forged a highly individual approach which has grown and changed into a loose, dynamic and recognisable style. Using acrylics gives her the vibrancy that is key to her bolder work. She also chooses a cooler palette at times to give a more detatched feel to the finished image. “I tend to layer the paint on quite thick as I love the texture this produces and I feel it also makes the painting more visually interesting. I love being able to make each building and place look different every time I paint them."
