The Artist Says:

Good art to me is a representational expression of beauty through design, shapes, values and color. It is a thrill when my interpretation resonates with others.


Ellen Hurley began her pursuit as an artist mid-life. While always appreciative of fine art, collecting art for many years, she finally decided to actively engage in making art following a significant loss in her life. The creative process became an important life line.
Hurley has studied drawing and painting with water color and oils, but oil is her primary medium, because of its lushness and ability to produce both dynamic and subtle effects. She strives to produce a representational expression of beauty by presenting her interpretations of flowers, landscapes and still lifes wtih antique pieces of brass, copper, silver, pewter and porcelain that have histories of their own. For Hurley, art, both as an artist and a collector, is a continual learning process.
She has been fortunate to study with accomplished artists, including Laura Robb, Daniel Keys, Kenn Backhaus, Kathy Anderson, Dennis Perrin, Christopher Zhang, Sergio Roffo, Leah Lopex, William Duffy and Marla Korr. She also has taken courses at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School.
For the past 11 years, Hurley has participated in an atelier of Kathy Cooper in Westford, MA.
