Ellen Nelson

Artist Statement

Ellen Nelson has been a Kalamazoo artist since graduating from the University of Michigan in 2013.  Her oil paintings and large-scale mural work seek to find the beauty, truth, and meaning in the chaotic patterns of everyday life.  She uses colors, patterns, and objects that are nostalgic, joyful, or powerful, with the hopes that her final pieces will offer viewers moments of respite from the weight of the world.
