"Perhaps the real subject of my work is finding the poetic moment of resolution in a painting - the visual version of resolving the words in poem, kneading the materials to life, and learning not to override the inner signal that it's time to stop."
As a contemporary artist, Ella Clocksin makes work in abstract painting and digital media about the coming-into-being of perception where interior and outer worlds intersect. She is widely exhibited, including at the 2017 and 2018 Royal Watercolour Society annual Contemporary Watercolour Competition.
Particularly interested in contemporary watercolour - strong watercolour - and the connections between making art and mindfulness, she teaches drawing and painting in imaginative studio workshops in Oxford and art retreats in Derbyshire, as well as at Waterperry Gardens and Arts in Provence.
Formal art education was at Oxford Brookes and Winchester School of Art. Formerly Visual Arts Therapist at The School of Life, London, she uses art with individuals and groups to generate awareness of the metaphors that accompany evolution of the inner dialogue and the experience of self.
