I Create Vibrant Portraits of Animals

My name is Ellie Benton. I’m a painter from UK. My work of art especially are colorful portraits of both animals and people. When I paint I don’t usually use sketches and plan anything, rather I follow my instinct to see what happen next on canvas. Layering up the canvas with colors is something that I enjoy doing to respond to whatever strokes I have made previously and see where they take me.


I keep my art personal and I take it as a way to understand more about what happens around me. For me, doing my art is something that allows me to zero in on my only work in front of me, without paying attention to other stuff unrelated with my work. Hope you can really enjoy my work.
