She is an artist I found on instagram who I quickly fell in love with. Elly works in Canada, specifically Toronto, but her work has been shown all over North America. She has an incredible painterliness and line quality that I find really inspiring. She deals mostly with figures and portraits but in a way that is very powerful. She works on a large scale and her work is profoundly expressive. I want my work to have the same impact as hers does. Her pieces have a beautiful ugliness and a startling energy. There is a looseness combined with a skill in anatomy and proportion that allows her to manipulate the figure. I want my work to have all of these qualities and capabilities and I will continue to look to her for inspiration.
