Artist: Ellen PickenShe/Her/Hers

Aritistic Discipline: Visual

I’m only 5’2″ but I can scale a three story building with a gallon of paint in one hand and a paintbrush in the other. Though I have many artistic outlets, my main motivator these days is designing and installing large scale murals. I love working with the public to create art that they love to live with. My clients include the City of Spokane, New York Department of Transportation, Google, REI, Adobe, and many more.
