Ellen Mooney Art www.painters-online.co.uk/artist/EllenMooney
Ellen has painted for as long as she can remember, it’s a joy for her.
In 2015 her life changed in an instant, when she suffered a Stroke. Painting then became part of her recovery, she joined a small art group at her local art shop and enjoyed the weekly classes and the camaraderie, which helped her confidence.
Since then her style has changed considerably, now preferring to paint in semi abstract/contemporary fashion, incorporating collage, gels, textured pastes, oil pastels, acrylic inks and anything she can use for mark making. Ellen loves experimenting and seeing what she ends up with. She also paints commissions and is member of the Nottingham Society of Artists.
