‘Flights of Fancy’ artwork on display at Taubman

September 21, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Michigan Medicine News

Since Ellie Harold started painting in 2003, she has primarily been a landscape artist, painting Michigan barns and lake shore scenes in oil. 

In November 2016, following a trip to Mexico, birds unexpectedly started migrating to her canvases and an entirely new body of work began to take shape.

Harold's current exhibit at Michigan Medicine, entitled "Flights of Fancy," features birds in colorful, light-filled works. The birds represent the lightness she associates with qualities of joy, hope, healing and inspiration she sees as a source of personal well-being.
