Ellie Malin is a print media artist based in Melbourne. Working predominantly in relief woodblock printing and experimenting in other print based mediums. She completed a degree in Fine Arts, majoring in printmaking from Monash University in 2007. Ellie’s latest body of work for her recent solo exhibition Illumine is a culmination of playful approaches to printmaking where woodblock and screen prints sit side by side. A vibrant, fresh palate of autumn earth and pop sit together in unison.
