    Lucy Ellis

    Freelance Artist and Tutor

    I am a professional artist who specialises in portrait commissions and running special creative painting classes. In my work I aim to capture the delicacy and vibrancy of life in unique hand crafted drawings and paintings. I work in many mediums but especially enjoy using soft pastels and pastel pencils to replicate light, colour and informality in a portrait, and create something which seems more 'alive'. 

    I have considerable experience of creating portrait commissions and of teaching art, I hold a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art and lectured in Fine Art for over nine years at New College Nottingham. As well as working as a resident artist in schools.


    I offer friendly, supportive workshops and detailed demonstrations for adults in portraiture (including pet portraiture), general soft pastels, watercolour for beginners, and a range of arts and craft courses for children. 


    If you would like to find out more about commissioning a portrait, workshops or demonstrations, or ask about pricing, please contact me at [email protected] .
