Ellen Solomons

Ellen Solomons Ellen Solomons is an award-winning artist who studied at the University of Georgia, the University of Connecticut and the Massachusetts College of Art. She began her art career as an apprentice to the famous illustrator David Stone Martin. "He really gave me the foundation of basic illustration, line and form," she says.

In the ensuing years, she pursued sculpting, design, off-loom bead weaving, doll making and jewelry fabrication. Ellen has created her own unique style by combining her successful ventures in these mediums. The combination of lyrical designs and strong colors makes Solomons' work captivating.
