Ellen McFadden acrylic on canvas 36”x36”

When Ellen McFadden rolled her walker into the art gallery, which held a recent exhibition of her paintings; she explained to a surprised doorman that she was the artist.

Remarkably, this filmmaker did not dwell on Ellen's age. Instead, he shone a light on her curiosity and desire for continual growth as well as the recognition she received from fellow artists and visitors.


When Ellen is asked what she'll do next she says: "Work on the next painting!"


The focused, meditative nature of painting is a reminder that there are many paths to mindfulness. Click below to meet Ellen and see her work.
