Carly Ellis grew up in Maryland before relocating to Spokane where she received a Bachelor of Fine Art with a minor in Art History from Eastern Washington University. While she primarily works in oil paint, she is a lover of mixed media and works in a diverse range of mediums from photography to sculpture. Ellis loves to take on a challenge and is currently working on an asphalt mural in Browne’s Addition with Spokane Arts. Her work is centered around the idea of the natural world, family, nostalgia and loss. She is fascinated with the idea of distortion and the impact it has on memory.
