About

 

Hello.

My name is Eleanor and if you were wondering, my initials spell elk.

I live in the remote north of Western Australia and have a continuing love affair with the ocean. Armed with ink pens, I am inspired by my surroundings - the moody ocean, the creatures beneath it's surface, the waves that dance to shore and the sun baked red dirt of the land.

Majority of my art works are drawings which are created through layering ink scribbles on a surface. As I predominantly use black ink pens, majority of my works are in black and white with the occasional work being splashed with some colour from inks or acrylic paints.

I've been painting, drawing and building things since I was a youngster. Over time things change, as do locations due to study, work or play. Yet regardless of my surrounds, art has always been a constant.

All of my original drawings are on Arches 300gsm 100% cotton paper and drawn with Unipin fine liners. Prints are also on 300gsm paper and printed to museum quality. All photography on this site is taken by myself or Aimee Jan of @Oceanaimee .
