Ella Mazur creates art traditionally with pen and ink, as well as digitally on her iPad, often combining the two. Her work is continually inspired by the great diversity of our planet, creatures and plants that inhabit it, by the ocean, the forests, the mysteries of the stars in the sky. With just a little bit of ink, Ella can tell stories about those things, and she hopes that they will make people pause and wonder, let you escape into an impossible world, or awaken your curiosity.
