Meet Ellen

Ellen Falltrick is a Northern California artist who uses oil painting to represent and empower survivors of adversity.

She aims to evoke emotion through her art and catalyze conversation with all others who oppose apathy.

"I am inspired by people. All my work has an underlying theme of advocacy for those that have experienced adversity. These paintings frequently exhibit the subject showing courage, tenacity, or overdone composure to honor the endurance we are so often forced to possess.

Regardless of what I paint, however, I am always fueled by emotion. Whether it's anger, strength, desperation, pain or pride, I pour those feelings into each piece with the hope the viewer will feel my message. If my painting elicits emotion, I have done my job."
