Artist + Ellen Ogden

Ellen Ogden, aka Elloartist, is a commission muralist and artist with a mission to craft a colorful world that inspires internal vibrancy. Her freelance career launched with a pay-what-you can series in 2020 that embodies her ethos. Called “Reflect Love”, the series married commerce with art to engender love and positivity in the face of fear and uncertainty, making art accessible on the face of storefronts, both emotionally and functionally pragmatic and essential for all. Her pieces combine strong painting and lettering craft, cultural and historical research, collaboration with community partners, and technical skills as an apprenticed stained glass artisan and a lineage of esteemed fine art colorists. Ellen is on a mission to use her craft and bigger picture vision to make her art a bridge between cultural, social, gender, and religious identities to the deep energetic elevated experience that art can engender in every human: offering a sense of joy and whimsy for any and all viewers.
