Ellen Granter works at her home studio in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Painting mainly in oils, Ellen loves to paint birds, flowers, landscapes, boats, beaches, and whatever else inspires at the moment.
My paintings are an expression of my desire to create beautiful and pure images of my favorite subjects.
For me, the point of painting them is not to create a souvenir image of a place, or an accurate illustration, but rather to try to capture the subject’s barest essence in a sparely composed way, using a lush palette and rich textures." - Ellen Granter
