acrylic paintings, drawings, cards

Ellen Guyer received a MFA, with a focus in painting, from University of Kentucky.  She has taught art classes to students ranging from kindergarten to college.  Ellen, a former jewelry designer, works in Prismacolor pencils, gouche, and ink.  Although much of her inspiration comes from the natural world, her drawings are vibrant combinations of intense colors and shapes rather than a strict representation of nature. She states,” For some intuitive reason I often put things together that would never be together in reality, such as a frog in the window of a Victorian home. Color is of utmost importance to me.”


Ellen’s work has been exhibited at various galleries including Evansville Museum of Art in Evansville, IN, The Living Arts and Science Center in Lexington, and Galleries International in Winter Park, Fl.


Ellen is a member of the Kentucky Craft Marketing Program.


Ellen’s work can be found at the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea.
