Hello I am Ellie, I am currently finishing my last year at the University of Reading where I study Art and English Literature.
As of September I will be doing a Masters in Illustration at the Arts University Bournemouth. When I am not illustrating or making artwork I can be found watching Star Trek, drinking tea and looking after my Springer Spaniel, Rosie.
