About Ellie McVerry

After completing my University studies in 2012, I began working from my studio in Leeds, and continues to be where I work and live. Painting is a way of expressing my life and working through the emotions that life throws at me. My current work is positive and explores nature and the symbolism of trees, a place where all colours are abstract and that transcends culture and religion.
I am motivated by a sense of discovery and firmly believe, as Johann Goethe said 'it's important to know the rules if only for the privilege of breaking them’. My aim is to learn, play, experiment and upon this grounding, break the rules to produce something new and fresh. My fascination with colour that has consumed me since a young age, my love of trees and nature was obtained from endless days of outside play with my brothers and sisters and this motivates the child within to put down on canvas my emotional presence of nature that I have always felt."

I continue to expand my current body of work, and at the same time, experiment in other fields in order to keep a fresh approach to my work. A number of original works and limited edition prints are available. For any enquiries please contact me on ellie.mcverry@btinternet.com. I am open to discussions regarding possible commissions.
