The Jazz Series:
Paintings on Paper

Jazz has been the subject of my paintings on layered, collaged paper since 1990. Each series of works is based on a single jazz composition.



Progress photos of my new project based on Chicago pianist/composer Ryan Cohan's The River on the Studio page.


The Drawing Center Artist Registry is now archived.  Still a favorite selection of my drawings and commentary about the role of drawing in my work: Drawing Center Ellen Priest Artist Porfolio.


A selection of my drawings

and brush studies are now represented by IdeelArt, a new online gallery  based in London: www.ideelart.com
