I Won’t Lie. At First, I Thought This Was Ordinary. Then I Realized It Was Pure Genius.

Ellen Jewett is a 28-year-old Ontario based freelance artist who has the best Etsy store!

She’s the creator of the popular ‘Creatures From El’. Made out of clay and acrylics, her mystical creatures discovers the outer realms of imagination and has found a massive following from all over the world. Fused with other elements in life, they embark on a grotesque, fantasy like form.

Her creatures are so realistic that you might mistake them for real life animals. Upon closer inspection, you’ll see some startling details as the animals show themselves to be much more.

The part that stands out from her sculptures is her ability to blur the line between realism, based on her sculpting precision and fantasy, which comes from her otherworldly arrangements.
