I am so miserable and I’m trying to pretend that I’m not and that I’m happy. But I’m lonely. I’m sad. I feel unwanted and like I’m just here. No one I love wants me around anymore and I don’t know what do to. I can’t talk to anyone. I can’t do anything but sit here and be sad.
I saw myself being so much more. I saw myself doing so many things and never putting up with feeling like this. But this is where I am. And I feel stuck in this spot. Unchanging. Unmoving. Unhappy.

Intricate Handmade Fantasy Creatures by Ellen Jewett
Born in Markham, Canada, Ellen Jewett took to shaping three-dimensional forms naturally at a young age. To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life, biological narratives and cultural statements. The tedious hours of labor act as the mysterious foundation from which each of her sculptures’ personality springs forth.
In 2007 Ellen completed her post secondary education with a degree in Biological Anthropology and Art Critique from McMaster University. She had already started Creatures from El in 2005 and upon graduation plunged into it full-time.
Ellen continues to supplement her knowledge with professional courses and apprenticeships. She aspires to pursue graduate work in anthrozoology whilst maintaining her life as a studio artist.
