My name is Ellen Wilberg and Im an artist working in Oslo, Norway. I love painting with watercolors, gouache and ink, and I also dabble in digital and acrylics. My favorite subjects are women, birds and nature, and I love clean lines and bright colors. I live with several chronic illnesses and painting is my escape from reality. Because of this I put a lot of my emotions into my work, but I also just want to create something beautiful to share with the world. My wish is to spread joy with my work and nothing makes me happier than when someone sees themselves in the emotions or it brings a smile to their face.

My current focus is to experiment and learn and become a better artist. I share my experiments, inspiration and process over on Patreon in the hopes that it may help someone else reach their goals too!

If Im not making art, I am most likely crocheting, watching tv, drinking tea, reading, or visiting mom to cuddle the cats.
