Ellen He is a Chinese-American artist and educator based in Los Angeles. Her vibrantly layered works are inspired by ideas of self care, daily life, literary metaphor, and stream-of-consciousness imagination. She am interested in how slowing down the artmaking process allows personal stories to to unfurl.
