South African-born artist Ellen Palestrant’s ethereal,
multi-dimensional paintings invite viewers into her
dream-like worlds...

"When I paint, I begin with a sense of what I want and then feel my way. As my boundaries of reality disappear, uncensored spontaneity takes over and I enter my world of dreams. My journey into fantasy is open-ended; anything can happen. My fleeting images undulate simultaneously on varied surfaces. Using a combination of acrylic paints, watercolor, and iridescent inks, I create a complex color spectrum. In addition to being a painter, I am also a film producer and the author of nine books, four of which I have illustrated. I have lectured extensively on the subject of creativity." ~
