Ellen Zaks is a British artist. She became interested in art soon after beginning to learn ballet; wanting to express what she felt in her body when she danced. Before studying for her degree in Expressive Arts at Brighton University, (specialising in Art and Dance), she attended classes in anatomy and life drawing at the Sir John Cass College, London.
Fifteen years ago she came to live in Marbella where she has a studio with a view of the Mediterranean. Ellen continues to show her work both here and abroad. Her paintings are in increasing demand in London, Paris and New York, with many already in collections world-wide. During a recent art residence in Georgia, one of her paintings was selected to be hung in the new Palace of Culture in Tbilisi. Her work has often been sought after by collectors associated with the arts, such as renowned composer and teacher at the Juillard School in New York Christopher Rousse, and recently Wayne McGregor, resident choreographer of the Royal Ballet, London.
