Lonie Laffely Ellis

I am an artist who enjoys working in multiple mediums. My current interests include ceramics, encaustic painting and fiber arts. I was born into a large family in Brunswick, Maine. My creative hours are spent working out of my home studio in Topsham.

My work has been shown in solo and group shows as well as galleries and local businesses. I have participated in several outdoor art festivals, and received awards and recognition at many juried art events around the state.

My art background includes some formal education at local universities, though I attribute most of my knowledge to curiosity, exploration and self learning.

My path through life has often incorporated a creative element. For me, creating is what feeds my spirit and awakens the senses. I believe all things can inspire, teach and ignite the creative spark inside each of us. Being curious is part of being an artist and I enjoy the freedom and challenges of expressing what is around me in my art. Nature is the greatest teacher, and I enjoy exploring the outdoors in every season.
