Through delicate lines of ink and watercolor, Marcy Ellis draws inspiration from flora, the natural world, and the female form. Her work explores the connection of landscape, spirit, space and undermines established clichés of femininity, encapsulates inclusivity, individuality and strength.
A childhood split between rural agriculture and a suburban planned community set in the open desert, Marcy was immersed in the beauty and simplicity of nature at a young age. Through close observation and a determined spirit, Marcy taught herself how to draw. Hours and days spent sitting in a wheelbarrow inside the musky greenhouses on the plant nursery her parents owned and operated in their backyard.
Marcy lives, draws and paints in the Sonoran Desert. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education from the University of Arizona. Her work has been generously welcomed and sold across the country and around the world.
