"Creating art is a journey, not a destination."
It is an exhilarating experience communicating with nature and translating meaning on to my canvas. I feel exuberantly alive, harboring positive energy and allowing it to take hold of my brush. When I paint, I look inside my mind, to see the flow of energy in the meadows, particles in the wind, wonders in the macro world, the colors of the rainbow through a different perspective. I don’t paint what I see, I paint what I imagine. This is my language to communicate with nature.
Born in Krakow, Poland, and educated in Europe, Elli Albrecht began her career in art from the moment she reached for her first writing utensil. Fascinated by the world of fantasy and moving pictures, motivated her to work in animation production. She worked as a background artist and creative director on numerous films, including works for HBO, Sesame Street, and Cartoon Network. Discovering macro photography, Elli was drawn to finding unusual geometric collages of nature. Her adoration for the beauty in the outdoors transcended into depicting nature’s patterns from her own perspective. Looking for ways to find herself, Elli transitioned from photography and began experimenting with abstract art. Over the years her style evolved from partial to total non objective abstraction, where she fully immersed herself in color and texture. In 2010, she opened her studio gallery where she currently features her most recent works. Elli warmly invites you to discover a contemporary world of nature’s portraits in her studio located in the beautiful historic Easton, PA.
