Ellen McDonough, Mountain View Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement My passion is creating beautiful, mystical places; I have had visions of these places all my life and I believe they actually exist in higher realms. These sanctuaries typically features classical architecture set against a vibrantly-colored landscape scene.
In addition to the visions I have had, my inspiration comes from my obsession with Atlantis and ancient Egypt, my love of architecture, and my fascination with astrology, symbols, sacred geometry and the night sky.
I grew up in Rhode Island and as an adult have lived in Massachusetts, Arizona and California. Currently I spend summer & fall in Boston and winter & spring in California where I market my images as prints, canvas-wraps, greeting cards, journal books and magnets.
In addition to art, I am also a travel photographer, so visit www.earthwisdom.com for a virtual journey around the world
It is my hope that my designs offer people inspiration, a sense of peace, and a feeling of being taken away to a beautiful respite far from everyday concerns.
