About the artist

My name is Ellena Dallas and I am a first year student at the Edinburgh College of Art, though I am originally from the North West of England. I specialise in portraiture and typically work with painting and drawing mediums for my art, however I will be experimenting significantly throughout the course. I am particularly inspired by the works of both historical and contemporary artists, including John Singer-Sargent, Lucian Freud and Barbara Walker.

This blog will be a documentation of my work during my BA Fine Art studies, exploring a range of practices through a series of short projects. The blog will mainly cover my Art in Practice modules, however I will also feature some of my work from my elective courses based around the art of drawing.

To see artwork from my previous studies and personal projects, please visit my Instagram page @ellenadallasart. You can also read an ‘artist Q&A’ article focusing on my A Level work (on the subject of the British Working Class) using the following link:
