Ellen Sinel: Paintings

about the artist

Ellen W. Sinel

An artist in Washington, D.C. and Truro, Massachusetts, Ellen Sinel is represented by Studio E Partners, Washington, DC. and by the Zenith Gallery, Washington, DC. where she has had numerous one-person exhibitions. She has also had one-person exhibitions at the Robyn Watson Gallery and the Wohlfarth Gallery, (both in Provincetown, MA.), at the Woman's National Democratic Club in Washington, DC., at Black Rock Center for the Arts in Germantown, Maryland, and at The Cosmos Club, Washington, DC. She has been juried into many gallery and museum exhibitions. Her work is collected and owned by corporations and individuals throughout the country, and she has been chosen to participate in several public projects in the Washington, D.C. area.

Sinel majored in art at Skidmore College, received her BFA from San Jose State University, and went on to graduate work in painting at American University in Washington, D.C. Her work has developed and changed; from traditional representation, to pure abstraction, and now, to a melding of the two. The source of her inspiration is landscape, the silent mysteries in nature's constant transformations. She conveys both the stillness and tension of nature, capturing a moment in time. She works in oils for the most part, and paints on canvas, paper, and wood.
