Hello, I'm Ellen Grael A.

I am a Dutch artist based in Amsterdam. At very young age I started to draw and making my first attempts in serious model drawings. In my teens I followed private classes with a number of different artists and went for several study-trips to Italy. I was impressed by the overwhelming beauty of the Italian artists and a new world opened my artistic eye and it was of great influence to my career. Inspired by many masters I finished art school Academy Minerva in Groningen with my self-invented technique on paper. Because I love to work with paper with specific characteristics I cannot translate to other materials such as linen​,​ a technique I’m still using today. I partly owed my interest in nature to my education and through the years my love for nature grew and I recorded it on paper. I’m making many snapshots using those to create an impression of the natural beauty for example​,​ the interesting effects of the wind when it moves branches and stalks or water circulations movements. Through the years I’m having concerns about environmental issues showing this in an imaginative atmospheric way dealing with several topics like ‘The Sounds of Nature’ and ‘The waters of Venice’. My artistic career is influenced by the many famous Italian​,​ French and Japanese art masters and eventually my work is a mix of Eastern and Western techniques. In summary​,​ the means I choose are minimal: ink​,​ water​,​ chalk and with the prepared background and on top the colorful pastels results in picturesque effects.
