• I have been sharing my love of colour and paint with clients for over 20 years. I paint, draw and illustrate from whimsy to depictive. I’m super excited to announce my debut picture book Night Walk written by Sara O’Leary released September 29th, 2020 with Groundwood Books! I can’t wait for you to see it and hear what you think!

    When I’m not illustrating for children’s books I collaborate with private clients and some of the city’s top arts and culture organizations including scenic art for The National Ballet of Canada and Toronto’s Young People’s Theatre

    My latest love is a personal project titled Girls Stand Tall. It is my way of helping girls maintain self esteem and a belief in their dreams of becoming whatever it is they wish. Please check out these amazing girls and breathe in their hope for the future.

    A graduate of Sheridan College in Interpretive Illustration, Ellie is an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), the Canadian Society of Children’s Authors Illustrators and Performers (CANSCAIP) and the Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC).
