My name is Eva Ellie and I come from a small village north in the Netherlands, but am currently living on the countryside in Norway. On a normal day I paint from my studio at home while dreaming away looking at the nature right outside my window.
My illustrations are created by using watercolours or gouache and the occasional experiment has me using both and other mediums. I enjoy telling stories through my art and try to create whimsical motives that reflect elements of folklore, stories from my childhood and happenings from my day to day life and others. My hope is that it can bring others joy and enlightenment, and make them inspired to look a little closer at the small things in life, because life is full of magic!
While my love lies in storytelling and illustration I also need to use my creativity in other places. I love gardening, creating wreaths and bouquets from pickings out of the forest, creating creatures by using old fabric leftovers or baking a nice cake on a Wednesday. I believe for me its important to be creative throughout the day, but staying creative by doing different things.
