Open Studios with Ellen Heise

Art by Ellen Heise

Ellen Heise is a local oil painter with a flair for fine detail. A native of Taiwan, Heise often captures serene scenic landscapes, lush with exotic flowers. Though, Heise will set her brush aside and take up an ink pen. Her live demonstration will show her illustration process. 

Elements of her Taiwanese heritage are also apparent in her creations. It's a harmonious union of both east and west in art and ideas, and her signature painted borders offer art lovers two images in one.

When/where: 1-3 p.m. Oct. 15 at Chico Paper Company, 345 Broadway
