Ellen Langford An artist native to Mississippi, Ellen builds images with oil or acrylic of the physical and psychological spaces and connections between church and tree, child and dog, blue and orange. Whether commissioned, working from the heart in her studio, or painting on location, Ellen is driven to communicate with layers of color and texture until each image becomes its own and she can move on. Several paintings at a time are always in progress, and Ellen moves back and forth as each piece develops at its own pace. Ellen paints a playful, and often joyful, outlook on life. After years away, studying and making art, it was in returning to Mississippi that Ellenís work found its rhythm and became highly narrative as she tried to make sense of the race, class, religious, cultural, mixed up gumbo of her home.
