530 West 25th Street, New York, NY


Ellen Globokar grew up in western Michigan with a pencil and a sketchpad close at hand. From a very young age, she was commissioned to draw portraits and displayed her watercolors at juried art shows. After two decades working in politics and government, she returned to her passion for art. Citing Impressionism, Abstract Expressionism, and the Bay Area Figurative Movement as her main inspiration, Globokar paints alla prima, capturing tranquil views of marine sunsets, lush gardens touched by soft rays of lavender light, and solitary rural landscapes. Her collages, made of scraps of hand-dyed Japanese paper, are also inspired by the colors and atmospheres of the seashore and countryside. Different depths and textures are achieved by arranging pieces of varying thickness and shapes, while metallic paint is added for a shimmering effect. Her work emanates a soothing contemplative beauty, an intimate communion with nature, offering a much-needed escape from the mundanity of life. A resident of Chevy Chase, Maryland, Globokar received formal instruction at the Art League of Alexandria, Virginia. There she participated in numerous juried exhibitions, winning “Best in Show.” She had two successful shows at the Peninsula Art Gallery in Lewes, Delaware, and was a featured artist at Beebe Medical Center’s Best of the Beach Art Auction in Rehoboth.

I spend a lot of time thinking about the piece I want to create: the palette, mood, movement, and feeling I want to evoke. My inspiration comes from nature, particularly the colors and atmosphere of the seashore as well as landscapes. I begin by tinting Japanese paper with water-based dyes and acrylics, adjusting the hue and tone, until I find the right combination. In order to achieve different textures and depths, I arrange pieces of varying thickness and shapes, adding a touch of metallic paint for a shimmering effect, where needed. Sometimes I put down each piece carefully like a puzzle, having planned much of the design ahead of time, but I will just as often work instinctively, responding to the last piece of paper I put on the canvas. For me art is a meditative process, a search for calm and beauty I discover in the soft pinkish tones of a marine sunset, the gentle lull of a water lily, the contemplative solitude of a summer afternoon.
