My name is Ellen (Ellie) Gerberich. I am award winning, published photo artist the owner of Nature’s Palette Photography Art. As a photographer, mosaic artist and painter it’s all about giving each piece of art I create an emotional connection with the viewer. My inspirations comes from my connection with the natural world and it's elements. At times it takes me months to fully develop my dreams into my vision.
Being a photographer allows me to capture moments in nature and life that are so often missed, amplifying details and observing what many may pass everyday yet fail to notice. Photo artistry allows me to see endless possibilities in the photos I take, allowing me to take my images to a more creative level and to enhance the emotional connection for the viewer.
My mosaic art and paintings are an extension of my love for a color and texture turning an idea into an exciting discovery as the unknown potential of the piece emerges. It’s a meditative process, where artist and art share a creative dialog. I enjoy up-cycling objects and they are often added to my art, giving them new life in the world.
Jewelry design has been another way for me to spread my artistic wings. I enjoy finding pieces of nature like sea glass and drift wood and up-cycling them into something different but beautiful. I also have been enjoying working this gemstones and crystals. They each have amazing energy and I like to hold the stone and feel it's energy before starting my creation. Each unique piece is made with intention to help balance the body, mind and spirit of the wearer. Interesting and unusual, you'll bring a part of nature along with you when you wear this small piece of art.
I am also a writer. I have written children's books, short stories and songs over the years and I have gotten to the "Why Not" stage of my life. You know, the stage where you are have less years in front of you than behind you. So, I have decided to add publisher and author to my many creative hats. Stay tuned for more on this endeavor and check my out my Blog and publishing drop down.
My artistic ambition is to capture nature’s song and the magical energy lurking within everything, with each piece speaking volumes about the present and being a talisman for the future. I hope my art engages your senses: visual, tactile, and emotional, by stimulating your imagination.
