ARTIST & MASTER PRINTMAKER
Ellie Neilsen is an experienced professional artist, well known for her printmaking and for her colourful acrylic and gouache paintings. In 2003 she re-located to near Brisbane after 40 years of working in isolation in rural Queensland. This has strongly influenced her work, both choice of medium and subject matter.
In 1995 she won a Corporate Fellowship to attend Luis Camnitzer’s master printmaking workshop in Tuscany, Italy.
She is represented in the Queensland State Library, The Queensland College of Art, Regional Galleries and Regional Council Collections, Art Bank – Canberra and Callide Coalfields.
Ellie is represented in collections in FRANCE, ITALY, and USA. She has exhibited with ARTPLUS in Singapore and with Impress Printmakers in Brisbane and overseas.
Her work is well represented in artists books and folios – The Flying Arts Book by Flying Arts Inc. Queensland. She also has work in book plate collections in Belgium, France, Poland, and Australia.
In 1994 and again in 1999 Ellie was recognised by the Banana Shire Council and received an Australia Day Award for Service to the Community.
