Whitman is a professional artist and art instructor who has attained national recognition for her portraits of individuals and oil paintings of wildlife. In a subtle, yet uniquely vibrant style. Ellen’s work displays the inner glow of the chosen subjects. The study of light, shadows, life, and sensitivity within and surrounding the forms reveals the soul of the subject for the viewer to behold. Many of her paintings and sculptures are dedicated to the celebration of young life in the human and animal kingdoms. Ellen’s approach to painting is to study light within the form through lumination – her portraits, landscapes, still life, and wildlife all capture elusive emotions and stir the imagination while demonstrating the power of spirituality in art.
