Ellen has always been a zealous traveler, wanting to explore the world. In her early years as a budding photographer, she snapped hundreds of pictures of family, friends, and "journeys".
Following school, she set out to see more of the world. Ellen, with her husband Ron, has visited all 7 continents, all 50 states, and over 55 countries. Of course, photography and travel are wonderful companions, and these travels have provided unlimited opportunities to learn about her craft and to capture through the viewfinder the wonders of landscape, history, and creatures all around us.
Ellen's original photographic interest was primarily wildlife with its unpredictable, majestic, and challenging subjects. Over the years, she has expanded to produce artful landscapes, "non-wild" nature such as a variety of flora and fauna, and most recently, her work with miniatures, portraits and dancers has received significant notice.
Since relocating to Pennsylvania, Ellen has worked on seriously honing her craft. Belonging to several photography clubs in the area gives her access to other fine photographers and a constant source of support and inspiration. She is the co-founder of a new group of women photographers in the South Central Pennsylvania area: the "Mamarazzi", a group of like-minded women who explore unique photographic opportunities and mutual support and networking. The Mamarazzi has already sponsored several group exhibits and its members are widely respected.
Ellen has exhibited considerably, both in individual shows, group exhibits, and juried competitions. She is constantly searching for more unique subjects and artful ways in which to present them. The world around provides her palette and canvas.

Ellen's photograph "Maison Triste, PA" has most recently (August 2018) been selected for MatthewChristopher's show, "Abandoned America --State of Disrepair" at the Mulberry Art Studio in Lancaster, PA. Congrats, Ellen!
