About The Artist

Ellie Fortier is a painter and illustrator from the Greater Boston area. She will be graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in illustration from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in May 2019. Influenced heavily by her surroundings, each of her paintings reflects an aspect of her experiences in her daily life, sometimes through the lens of derealization and depersonalization. Focusing primarily in acrylic painting, Ellie is also well versed in a variety of mediums including gouache, watercolor and ballpoint pen. Through the use of smooth, flat colors and selective line work, she creates intriguing scenes of daily life that push the boundaries between reality and imagination.

Prints and postcards of her work can be purchased through her instagram which is linked at the bottom of this page.
