Biography

Ellen Beier

Ellen Beier started drawing as a small child at the side of her artist grandmother. After architecture study at Cornell and art courses in London, she graduated with a BFA from California College of the Arts.
 
In London, a friend showed me Arthur Rackham's books and an early 'Alice' illustrated by Tenniel. Working at the time as an architectural draftsperson, I filled the margins of my blueprints with fairy tale sketches.
