As wildly apparent in her enchanting and elaborate designs, sculptor Ellen Jewett believes that “there is no such thing as too much detailing.” Known for her surreal sculptures, the Canadian artist combines flora, fauna, and fantasy to craft fanciful composites of creatures.
With an eclectic background that spans anthropological studies, stop motion animation, medical illustration, and even the care of exotic animals, Jewett draws inspiration from a myriad of sources. Her art is molded by each of her talents, and her realistic-yet-unreal maquette-like models showcase her keen anatomical and anthropological understanding of animals.
