The YMCA Hosts Watercolor Artist Nadine Ellman

Watercolor artist Nadine Ellman will be the Ward Downtown YMCA’s featured artist for the Art Walk from 6pm-8pm. Nadine moved to Springfield in 1990 from the Chicago area where she grew up. She always had a desire to pursue her talent in art but had to put that on hold while raising her family. Since 2018, her works have been on display in various locations here in the Ozarks and she has been recognized with several awards.  Recently one of her pieces was accepted into Watercolor USA 2022 and is currently on display at the Springfield Art Museum.

Much of her time is spent doing commissions of portraits for people in various parts of the country.  In addition to her studio work, she has entered the world of literature as an illustrator for a children’s book which will be available soon on Amazon.  She also accepts students for private lessons and is a member of the Springfield Regional Arts Council and Studio 55.

Nadine regularly attends instructional workshops and credits much of her inspiration and growth to her friend, teacher, and mentor Alicia Farris, a well-known watercolor artist from Springfield.

When Nadine is not painting, she enjoys cooking, gardening, and spending time with her family (husband, 4 kids, and 7 grandchildren), including her beloved standard poodles.
