"Every artist dips his brush into his own soul and paints his own nature into his pictures." Henry Ward Becker (1813 – 1887). I have had a life-long love affair with art; the brush, paper, canvas, and colour. My favourite medium is oils, although I have painted using mediums across the spectrum. 

My art is something that, like me, has grown and matured over the years, the form, the fusion of colour, the brush strokes, the subject matter chosen. I strive to produce a work that breathes, that moves, that radiates life. It has been a journey that has allowed me to express my personal interpretation of animals, flowers, trees, the human form, landscapes; all inherently different, all singular, all just me. 


Artist Ellie Eburne does NOT offer a commissioning service. Exceptionally, however, a commission may be accepted. If you wish to approach the artist, your first step is to contact Keith McFarlane (Portraits Africa) at editor@negativeentropy.net. While Portraits Africa will pass all serious requests to the artist, the decision to reply, or to accept a commission is a matter for her alone. The artist’s decision is final. If an overseas commission is accepted, the Terms & Conditions of the African Portraiture Services (aka Portraits Africa) will apply.
