Norm Ellis
Airbrush with Acrylics and Ink
Surrealist Artist
The imagery in my work is inspired by my observations of nature. Native American culture prior to the 1800's and the experiences I have had in the world about me. I fell in love with surrealism because it is limitless i dimension. it allows me the freedom to create what is in my heart. I am creating a visual communication with the world that words alone cannot express.

For my studies I use pencil or Prismacolor pencils with ink. My final art is produced with airbrush and ink. I enjoy the flexibility of airbrushing with the varying gradation it allows. I use a mixed media of airbrushing with acrylics and ink, pencil, and Prismacolor.
