Ellen Postrel Gallery


After many years of training in oil and acrylics, Ellen Postrel found watercolor and never looked back. The award-winning water colorist Sue Archer has been her mentor and workshops with Charles Reid helped to enhance Ellen's ability to transform white paper with vibrant color.

Ellen has gone green. She is passionate about painting colorful vegetables and flowers displayed at farm stands and markets. Recently Ellen became enamored with the body language of shoppers eyeing food and plants. Ellen studies her subject deeply before beginning a painting using photographs and reference books. Choosing what to leave unsaid is her niche. Once the painting begins, she forgets all rules.

Ellen has shown her watercolors in Delray Beach at two International Orchid Society shows and the Palm Beach Water Color Society. In New York, Ellen has exhibited at the Clothesline Art Show in East Hampton, the Westhampton Beach Library, the Quogue Library, and the Gallery at the Flowers at the Greenery. In the summer of 2010, Ellen's painting was selected as one of the best 50 covers in 50 years of Dan's Papers based in Bridgehampton, New York.

Ellen resides during the winter in Boca Raton, Florida, and spends the summer in Westhampton Beach, New York. She is a member of the Palm Beach Water Color Society and the East End Arts Council in Riverhead, New York.

Please visit The Fitzgerald Gallery in Westhampton Beach, New York to view Ellen's work.
