Based in Vancouver, Canada, Ellen Scobie holds a BFA in Art History from the University of Manitoba. She continued her studies in Europe at the London School of Printing and the Barcelona Academy of Art. Ellen works with digital imagery, exploring the poetry in digitized shapes to describe lived experience. Her densely layered, digital mixed media compositions navigate the territory between photography, printmaking and painting. As an early adopter of digital printmaking, Ellen’s work has been exhibited internationally including Snap to Grid at LACMA (Los Angeles, 2008) and Cross-Pollination: 14 Contemporary Artists in Digital Media hosted by the Digital Art Guild (San Diego 2010). Group exhibitions include the 4th Annual CODAaward Winners at The Octagon Museum (Washington, DC, 2017). Ellen's work has been widely collected and exhibited in Canada and internationally, including New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Malaysia, Spain and Switzerland.

ARTIST STATEMENT
“As I am constantly looking for ways to express my experience of living, my practice has taken on a more abstract approach. I’ve created these expressive landscapes and abstracts by extracting pixels from photographs and using the resulting shapes as building blocks in a new composition. I’m intrigued by the idea of taking artifacts of past experience and using them to create something new. The image takes shape as I intuitively layer these photographic fragments, constantly searching for an image that will resonate with me. I use pixels as the building blocks for my artwork which I view as a metaphor for cells and to express the idea that on a collective level, the interconnectedness of all things supports and generates all actions. My hope is that the artwork evokes sensation in the viewer, providing a way to experience visually what language can only inadequately articulate.”
