Ella Walker graduated with a BA in Painting and Printmaking from Glasgow School of Art in 2015, before attending The Drawing Year in 2017. On graduating The Drawing Year Ella was awarded the Jack Goldhill Prize in Drawing and also won the Richard Ford award to study at the Prado, Madrid in September 2019. Painting, drawing, and fresco, form the foundation of her practice. Ella’s repertoire of works are contemporary concepts that explore medieval narrative and costume. Her compositions are tightly framed, shallow spaces that suggest constant interplay between the realms of drawing, painting and design.
