Ellen Church

For Ellen, there is a need for art to “celebrate living and our connection to the earth, sustain our spirit, honor nature, and speak of its mystery and sacredness.” Ellen lives year round on Mt. Desert Island in Maine. There she paints the places that reflect the spirit of the woods, mountains, and shores of her island home.  She has exhibited with the National Watercolor Society, is a signature member of the New England Watercolor Society, and her card titled “Apple Trees in Snow” was nominated for a Louis Award in 2001.  Her work can be seen in Maine at the Gallery At Frenchman’s Bay, Somesville, and The Courthouse Gallery, Ellsworth.
