 First up.....

Ella Robinson is a talented young artist whose work celebrates vibrant colour, pattern and unexpected textile materials. She is a graduate of the Royal College of Art, London.

Working with both found and purchased media, she creates one-off hand crafted pieces inspired by the colours of the urban environment and the charm of the coast.

Ella Robinson was born in Brighton (UK) in 1984. Her passion for art was first realised during experimental art lessons, where numerous found materials were used; ring pulls from drinks cans, large pieces of wood found in skips and scraps of materials and ribbon. She found it more exciting and inspiring to work three-dimensionally with materials, discovering their unique properties, rather than to paint or draw.

Since graduating Robinson has continued to combine found wood with traditional textile media and plastics by drilling, stitching and wrapping.

Whilst studying at the Royal College, Robinson came third in the Man Group Drawing Prize (2009) with examples of her embroidered driftwood pieces, was awarded The Worshipful Company of Dyers’ Travel Bursary (2008) (where she travelled to New York), and had her first solo show, Stripetastic, at The Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery.
