Salina Ellis presents Ellen Kooi

This artist lives and works in the Netherlands. She started as a photographer in the theater, making posters for plays. She like to create a “fairy tale” atmosphere. Some of her images are based on Dutch folk tales.

She employs a great use of color, but not to the point that they overwhelm the image. She does do some digital manipulation. It was interesting to learn that she mounts her photographs on plexiglass. Her website (and others) and others offers little information other than her curriculum vitae.
