Ella Dent

"I have always created art. I began, as most do, with coloured pencil as a child. This progressed to pastel drawings and small, but incredibly detailed illuminated lettering combined with calligraphic verse as a teenager. My early twenties heralded my first real foray into painting, which brought with it an outpouring of emotion: sweeping brushstrokes, textural depths, canvases to sink into.
Now? I don’t paint as much as I should, but have just started a work that takes me back to my roots. Coloured pencil on paper – with text. Love it!"
