Me(original)2.jpg

Hi! My name is Ellen and I'm an illustrator based in Los Angeles. I grew up the daughter of an animator and have enjoyed drawing all my life. Much of my work is inspired by my love of mid-century design and children’s books. When I’m not working I enjoy pub trivia, watching old movies, and visiting my favorite thrift stores and flea markets.

I am also apart of illustration collective,Clover Scout, where myself and three friends combine our efforts to create whimsical products.
