Visual Art Ontario
Ellie Lagrandeur is a natural-born artist. Having been born and raised in Northern Ontario had its benefits; the beauty of natural surroundings and abundant wildlife provided a fertile training ground as a young artist. Sketching and painting were regular pastimes in Ellie’s childhood; and at age 14, as recommended by her art teacher, she was designing and drawing the program covers for the Sudbury Little Theatre guild. In 1986 Ellie began her career as a professional artist, creating large-scale wall murals and canvas paintings. Much of her work features natural scenes that emphasize her love of animals.
