Artlink Staff Highlight of the Week

 

Artlink is dedicated to hiring staff who are #passionate about the arts and serving the Fort Wayne #community. We invite you to learn more about our #wonderful team. Read below and get to know a bit about Ellen!

What role do you play at Artlink?

I am a gallery assistant and VR- Google Tilt specialist.

If you have an artistic practice, what is it? What are you currently working on?

My artistic practice is primarily painting with oils. I'm currently working on a large skyscape which is part of a series about the beauty and power encompassed by both nature and technology.

What's your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?

My best friend and I usually grab coffee and then road trip somewhere new to hike.

 Who's your favorite artist and why?

Contemporary artist: Renato Muccillo, because of his incredible talent at conveying the beauty of nature but also because he has remained kindhearted and genuine. Old master artist: Artemisia Gentileschi, because of her immense talent, her use of narrative, and her strong and competent depiction of women during a time when that was a rare sight to see within artwork.

 What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

To treat everyone as you wish to be treated.

What have you accomplished that you are most proud of?

Sticking to my aspirations and not settling for anything I'm not happy with.
