About Awiya Side of Life

American Artist Louise Ellis explores the boundaries of painting in various pigment mediums. Leaning heavily towards Impressionism, Louise pushes beyond the boundaries of established painting practices towards Awiya. Awiya, meaning “light moving through” or creativity is a unique creative process which encompasses contemplation, intuition and design principles rarely used together. Movement of light. Passion for life. Reverence for the creative process of expression. Louise studied fine art at Minneapolis College of Art & Design and Bellevue University and continues to be a self-taught artist. Louise was featured as an emerging American artist in the BU Bellwether Magazine June 2016. Filtering life through Multiple Sclerosis, Louise explores her ever changing visual perceptions as she creates through light and form. When Louise is not being a very busy and sought after Painter, she can be found drawing, painting, or gently creating in her private life. Louise asks you to join her on a unique journey through creativity and the process of bringing your vision to canvas.

Casting Shade

It’s that time again my creatives. Stephen and I are once again doing some international traveling.

Last time I focused on photography and tried out some oil pastels. I wasn’t to impressed with the oil pastels the 1st time I tried them in 1988 and much less May 2017 UK trip.

This time I’m taking charcoal pencils. I want to be able to sketch freely, quickly and focus on the movement of the subjects.

I look forward experiencing the North Sea again. Perhaps catching some of her waves in shades of charcoal.

I believe we’ll spend a few days in London and explore Natural History Museum London.

Bags are pack, passport in hand, backpack of artist supplies assembled …. Stephen has his 40 lb backpack of camera gear ready & were off.

Walking Rain

I started this piece last year or so. It’s a wet spring day in NYC. I had spent the day, by myself, in the city. This particular scene occurred after I walked across the Pershing Square covered street bridge on E 42nd and turned around to admire the cafe I had just left.

I spent about an hour slowly drinking a cup of tea, people watching and reading a book I acquired from the MMA (the MET) earlier that day.
