Ellen Scobie is a figurative sculptor and digital mixed media artist based in Vancouver. How she sees the world and her place in it is the impetus for her creative exploration, as she defines her universe through inventive place-making. Her figurative sculpture explores hybrid identity and alternative representations of the body. In her digital mixed media work, she deconstructs photographs into idiosyncratic pixel shapes which she uses as building blocks for new realities.
Ellen has worked for over 30 years in many different media and creates original mixed-media painting on canvas, limited-edition prints, photography, and sculpture in terracotta, plaster, fiberglass and bronze. Her work has been widely collected and exhibited in Canada and internationally, including New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Malaysia, Spain and Switzerland.
