Ellen Sereda is a Mission, BC based painter and mixed media artist. Her work focuses on portraiture and wildlife, primarily birds, though both are often found in a single piece. She is inspired by the natural world and by stories and myth. “Some of my pieces are straight portraits of the birds I encounter walking through the forests and wetlands around me, other times I use elements of the natural world to tell a story.” Her work can be found in collections throughout Canada, the US, the UK and Australia.
