Ellen is an educator, practicing artist and author from Galesville, Wisconsin. Seldom venturing on an expedition without her paints and sketchbook, her style reflects the Adventurism Art Movement, described in greater detail on her website. In 2014 (May-Sept) Ellen completed a source-to-sea paddle on the Mississippi River from Lake Itasca, Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. This journey is described in her book; One Woman's River: A Solo Source-to-Sea Paddle on the Mighty Mississippi, and showcases her art created and inspired by the expedition. In 2015 (June-August) she completed a section of the Jefferson/Missouri River from Twin Bridges, MT to Pierre, S.D., and in 2017 completed the section from Pierre, S.D. to the confluence with the Mississippi River near St. Louis, MO. Her art studio is close to the Black River and Mississippi River near Trempealeau, Wisconsin and is covered with art produced from creative trips by canoe and kayak into the wilderness.

 The Paddler Artist: Creating Art on the Water

Killarney - Clarion Hotel Sat 11:30am-12:15pm 

Any paddler can use creativity to enhance journal entries, sketches, writing projects, and memoirs during their river journeys. Ellen describes how she overcomes the challenges of making art during an expedition, and shares helpful ways to experiment with non-traditional materials. Discover how journaling and sketching can be used as a springboard for other inspirational projects after the paddling is done.
