The Artist Zoe Ellenberg   Zoe Ellenberg - Artist

Nature is my perspective inspiration and muse. I have a passion for the littoral. Where the reef meets the tropical rainforest. Where mountains swell up from the sea and where the abundance of nature bursts into flower and birdsong. This passion has led me to the rainforests of Cape Tribulation FNQ, Buderim Queensland, Bali Lombok and the Gillis Indonesia, Vietnam and the South Pacific. Corals, mangroves, swamps, forests, ferneries, epiphytes and orchids are my entire palette blasting with colour and life. My paintings grow as the forest does sometimes as a vine organically twisting and turning in linear black enamel forging a leafy path, sometimes as a vapour of shocking colour as an inflorescence, here a drip spill of ink down from the tall canopy, here a blaze of sunset sky or aqua sea or drenching rain.
