‘ Ella Gillespie’
Evans Head – New South Wales – Australia
Ella is a proud 14-year-old Indigenous girl of the Awabakal nation who has been painting & drawing for as long as she can remember. Her art is inspired by Mother Nature, wildlife, her culture & her love of bright colours.
Moving to the Northern Rivers at a young age was a life changing experience for Ella. Living in a beautiful environment, surrounded by the natural colours & shapes of the landscape & the local marine & wildlife has influenced the story & colour palette of her artwork. Ella’s connection to Aboriginal culture can be seen throughout her creative process as she incorporates experiences of the bush, yarning & learning about culture.
