Ellie Wyeth began her career as an artist in New York City, where she took courses at Parson’s School of Design, the Art Student’s League and the School of Visual Arts. She studied a variety of subjects ranging from anatomy and painting to humorous art, cartooning and illustration. During this time she drew house portraits, designed the posters for The Gathering Place, an actors’ studio, and seasonal greeting cards on commission. Since moving to Princeton in 1981 to the present she has worked steadily painting and illustrating. Her illustrations have been published in: NEW JERSEY, A Guide to the State, published by Rutgers University Press, IRONS IN THE FIRE, published by Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, THE PRINCETON DOG WALK 2006, sponsored by the Medical Center at Princeton, and PRINCETON, The First 250 Years, published by Princeton University Press. Other clients have included The Eagleton Institute at Rutgers University, Princeton Medical Center, Lawrenceville School, Princeton Day School, Micawber Books, Mary Jacobs Library, Nick Hilton Studio, and the YWCA of Princeton among other local businesses. Ms. Wyeth’s work is characterized by an eclectic use of media and a subject matter that is both whimsical and occasionally unexpected. Her inspiration derives from her love of simple objects coupled with an on-going study of art history. Her celebration of the Everyday infused with the exotica of past art and culture keeps her ideas fresh and her work evolving. Her style reflects her vision with themes in bold colors using acrylic, oil and gouache paint..
