Welcome to EcoArts Lab…
My name is Ella and I’m a multidisciplinary artist, community art gardener, photographer, arts educator, budding permaculturist, consultant and Founding Director of the Emerging Arts Professional Network – a national not for profit and community support network of over 4,000 arts professionals from across Canada.
I recently moved to the West Coast to pursue a Masters degree at SFU to explore the cross sections of arts and environmental education. When I’m not researching, gardening or posting cool things online, you can find me teaching youth empowerment projects at local schools & community centres or working as an arts consultant/facilitator for a number of marketing, outreach, social media and community research contracts in the arts. Plus I’ve been a guest speaker at national and international conferences that focus on the next generation of arts leaders, guerilla marketing, social media and more recently environmental art.
These days my creative and professional work explore intersecting art forms, youth empowerment, hybrid identity, dance photography, permaculture, yoga, community development and ecological identity.
