Teaches these classes at Traditions Weeks

Ellen Elmes’ paintings have been acclaimed for their unique, collage-style blend of symbolic imagery and flowing naturalism. She is a muralist, watercolorist, author of her memoir An Appalachian Labyrinth: Painting to the Center, and retired community college teacher. Ellen and her husband Don recently had a retrospective showing in Bluefield, West Virginia, of 67 works of her paintings and his photographs that reflected on 54 years of life experiences during their marriage and partnership in the arts. Photos and stories of the visual artist’s work and career, both past and present, can be found on her website.
