Collette J Ellis
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
Born in April 1989 Collette June Ellis grew up surrounded by the spectacular landscapes of North Wales, UK. Her work is often inspired by fantasy and mythology, drawing inspiration from ancient cultures and a variety of countries.

‘The Hobbit’ by J.R.R.Tolkien was her favourite books as a child and she later fell in love with the artwork involved in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movies and the work of Japanese film director Hayao Miyazaki.

​Collette attended Glyndwr University in Wrexham and achieved a Masters in Design Communication: during which, she travelled to China after being awarded a grant by the Welsh Livery Guild; to investigate dragon legends in both countries. In 2017 she was lucky to receive another grant from the Welsh Government to return to China to gather even more information for her future art book on the subject of Chinese Dragons.

​She has exhibited at various conventions across the UK; including London, Manchester and Cardiff Comic Cons. In October 2016 she opened her third solo exhibition in the Oriel Yuys Mon on Anglesey and has launched three successful Kickstarters, one of which explored the monsters and mythical beasts of her home country of Wales and sold over 1,000 first edition copies in its first year.

Over the years Collette has worked on numerous publications for authors and album covers for musicians. She has also worked for ‘The Knight Shop’ suppliers of Disney and Game of Thrones and for the British Heritage Societies, producing decorative parts for swords and armour.

​In the past Collette has been featured in several online blogs and magazines, including Imagine FX Magazine, Y Lle’ on Welsh TV channel S4C, has taken part in a one to one Podcast with 'Pencil Kings' and has appeared on the BBC 'Wales Today' Show.

​In her spare time Collette is an active member of her local HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) group, she also has a passion for herpetology keeping a number of exotic reptiles at her home in Wales. 
A while ago I decided to leave DA for a while and remove a lot of my artworks so I could come back with fresh eyes at a later date. Recently i started to post some of my new artworks and I'm really liking the way my gallery looks now. I'd like this gallery to be more like a professional portfolio compared to my social media sites which can be a bit messy and disorganised. 
I hope you guys that are still with me are enjoying the new format and experience, as always your feedback means a lot to me and I appreciate your ideas regarding my posts x

May a drive of noble (red) dragons circle your head today, showering you with earned praise, wonderful, intricate presents and lifelong good fortune.  May your friends think of you and smile and laugh, may those you love think of you and feel better and hope to see you soon.  May the year's journey 'round the sun that begins today leave you wiser, happier, more learned and eager to take a running start at the next one, and may it all begin with these sincere wishes that you have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
