Ellen Jewett is a Canadian sculptor who believes that there is no such thing as too much detailing. Actually she is best known for her surreal sculptures. She loves to combine flora, fauna, and fantasy to craft the beautiful composition of sculptures.
Actually, Jewett’s art is molded by each of her talents and her realistic-yet-unreal maquette-like models. She draws inspiration from a myriad of sources.
And the most interesting thing is that she has a full combination of skills ranging from the care of exotic animals, medical illustration, stop motion animation, and even anthropological studies. That’s why her arts showcase her keen anatomical and anthropological understanding of animals.
In her work, Jewett uses only materials from nature to emphasize the unconventional feel of her pieces. This signifies that she wish to maintain her connection with nature. It can be seen in each of her captivating chimera which she would intricately handcraft "down to the finest filigree" and scrupulously paint such piece.
