Smith, Ellie

I am a 25 year old who is studying Illustration at the University of Hertfordshire. I was diagnosed with a Brain Stem Tumour at the age of 3. After surgery it left me unable to walk and stopped me using my right hand that I would usually use. I learnt to adapt so I can use my left hand which has allowed me to draw and be creative. My disability meant I wasn’t able to have a career in that field so I found another way to show my love of animals and nature by drawing and creating art. I mainly do ink timeline however I enjoy experimenting with materials.
