The Irish Connection
Over the years, Ellen has visited Ireland many times and now
spends a good part of the year in Westport, Co. Mayo on the Atlantic coast.
She has fallen in love with the country, itsí people, landscape and itsí music. She feels a
great affinity with Ireland and itsí history and finds many similarities with Israel. Irelandsí
magnificent scenery has inspired her to try her hand, for the first time, at landscape painting.
Taking long walks and sketching on her way (weather permitting). Later she works these sketches
into proper paintings (often with the help of photographs taken on the way).
