Ellie Yannas studied Painting at Chelsea School of Art and Performance at the Ecole Philippe Gaulier and Central School of Speech and Drama (MA Advanced Theatre Practice).
Her work, often autobiographical, has a strong three-dimensional presence. She uses raw pigments and natural materials like wood, earth and sand, strong in texture and heavy in matter, juxtaposing them with script and personal photographs, to create visual narratives concerned with memory, time and myth.
Ellie has worked for a variety of private, corporate and public art clients on projects and commissions, and her work is found in collections in England and abroad.
