ellen markoff

i refer to ellen as the printmaster because not only has she been working as a print production manager for years, she also creates these beautiful dreamlike monotypes at her studio in hunters point. she is always on the lookout for textural inspiration, and as you can see, she has a slight interest in color as well.



and because i can’t pick just five: alizarin, amaranth pink, atomic tangerine, azure, carmine, caput mortuum, celadon, chocolate, chartreuse, cinnabar, cobalt, copper, cosmic latte, cerise, ecru, inidgo, fuschia, flax, falu red, indian red, terra cotta, lemon chiffon, linen, eggshell, seashell, navajo white, ochre, persian plue, persimmon, pear, papaya, raw umber, robin egg blue, rose madder, school bus yellow, tea rose, vermillion, viridian, wheat, wisteria, cream, ivory, fire engine red, cardinal, venetian red, paynes gray, xanadu, taupe…need I say more?
