The Artist Says:

I never feel that I am controlling a painting - making it happen. I am waiting for a moment of illumination.  If I sit quietly with the painting for 
a while, communing with it, quiet voices inside myself will tell me what it needs. I'm on the lookout for a face, an expression or gesture that 
reaches beyond the mundane and somehow seems to embody some universal human experience or truth, in all its poignance and beauty. 
Its when I can evoke this kind of experience in my painting that I feel most satisfied as an artist.

Collectors Say:

"I discovered Ellen Dreibelbis' work 25 years ago and my husband and I have bought 10 paintings over the years. In addition to her technical mastery - strong compositions and drawing and rich color, there is a spiritual quality to her work that has given us enormous pleasure over the years. Her love and delight in the multicultural people she paints is very evident and never fails to touch my heart."
Linda Legman
