'A Painter's Vision' by Barbara Ellison



Barbara Ellison BA, ATD studied at Belfast College of Art and became a full time painter after retiring from Stranmillis University College. She experiments constantly, exploiting random effects while underpinning her work with strong draughtmanship. She uses line and colour intuitively to create an artwork which contains logic, coherence and a life of its own, while expressing a very personal response to landscape, still life, and figures.


Barbara is a member of the Watercolour Society of Ireland, the Ulster Watercolour Society, and a Past President of the Ulster Society of Women Artists. She has exhibited widely and is a multiple award winner.
