Enjoy wine & cheese and live jazz at Ellen's opening reception on Friday, July 13 from 5-7pm.
Ellen Lynch was raised in a rural community in Western New York, where forests, fields, and the dairy farm where she worked from the age of seven fostered her curiosity and innate embrace of the natural world. Trees and creeks were her playground, and dogs, cats, horses and cows her companions.
Ellen received her fine arts degree from the State University of New York at Purchase, and pursued her career as a graphic designer in New York City. After a decade of relishing the City, and having earned acclaim in her field, Ellen relocated to the Teton Mountains in southeast Idaho. While maintaining her client base in New York, she wandered the mountains on horseback, camera in tow, capturing the grandeur of the granite peaks, the dramatic skies, and the animals who make their home there. She also established a cattle ranch and enjoyed being “the camera cowgirl.”
Today, Ellen makes her home in New York’s Hudson Valley, visiting the West, as well as new settings as often as possible. Dramatically different landscapes keep her eyes fresh in an ongoing search for ways of seeing, capturing and sharing the world around her.
Ellen’s work has been exhibited and collected throughout the United States.
