Bio

Elly Clifton is an Artist living in Coledale NSW with a Degree in Fine Arts.  She lives with her husband and 3 sons, their girlfriends and 4 Kittys.

A fascination with Bromeliads has led to a series of acrylic paintings on stretched canvas, that are bright and colourful, and often contain playful little critters.

Currently Elly has been experimenting with pressed flowers and resin, creating colourful mandala style artworks.

Elly also enjoys working with clay and has created some expressive characters as wall hangings.  Wall Murals have also featured in her work over the years - with examples in the 'More Art' section.  Some of the original Bromeliad paintings are available for purchase, just email Elly for a list.
