Ellen Pliskin splits her time between her studios in Cheshire Connecticut and Manhattan. She studied at SVA and has degrees from Hunter College and Fordham University. Her most unusual venues for exhibition have been 6 U.S. Embassies, all sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Art in Embassies Program.
For me watercolor is a graphic medium where you can see the process. The painting is as much about this process as the things that are depicted. Watercolor really allows me to get in touch with the kinetic aspect of seeing and marking, which in turn culminates in a richer landscape vision.
