Ell Violet is a multi-disciplinary artist from New Zealand whose work has heavy emphasis on embroidery and mixed media. While painting has been a lifelong passion, embroidery did not enter her conscience until 2016 when she inherited a huge stash of threads. With a new found admiration for family sewers before her and enchanted by the possibilities of her new materials, she hasn't looked back since.

Ell draws most of her inspiration from the natural world and plays with the relationship between ethereal and photorealistic imagery. Combined with delicate application of embroidery and various textural mediums, her work tells stories about the fragile and teetering existence of her subjects and the world they inhabit.
