Biography

Ellen Eagle is known for her intimate pastel portraits. Her work is represented by Forum Gallery, N.Y. She has had four solo exhibits and has been shown in many group exhibits throughout the United States in such venues as The National Academy Museum, NY; Butler Institute of American Art, OH; Frye Art Museum, WA; Albright Knox Gallery, NY; Long Beach Museum, CA; New Jersey State Museum; and the Arkansas Art Center. In 2011-12, she exhibited twenty pastel paintings in a two-person traveling exhibit in China. Her co-exhibitor was the curator, whose purpose in inviting Ellen was to largely introduce the medium of pastel to the Chinese art community. Her paintings have been the subject of many publications. Her own book, Pastel Painting Atelier, was published by Watson-Guptill, NY, in 2013. Ellen teaches the only class devoted exclusively to pastel at the Art Students League of New York, and has given workshops throughout the United States, in Croatia, and China.
