Ellen Kantro – Visitors’ Bureau

I paint because I love the process and the never-ending variety of elements and textures that I can layer into a single piece. I’m influenced by dilapidated buildings, and the way time and nature’s elements alter our surroundings. Rust, peeling paint, and cracked surfaces have a distressed beauty about them that I try to evoke in my work. As a former graphic designer, typography plays a significant role in many of my paintings.
