Kylie Ellis

Artist Educator

Kylie grew up in Connecticut beside a goat farm along the Connecticut River where she realized her love for visual art. She moved to New York City to pursue her craft and she expanded her fine arts knowledge to encompass new media, attaining the full scope of visual arts from classical fine art painting to video art and graphic design. She realized teaching was her calling after studying environmental art under Natalie Jeremijenko her senior year at New York University, but she knew she would look for a graduate program somewhere with fewer skyscrapers. Maine's unique history deepened her love for the region , and engulfed her in the rich history of New England and the infinite ways this part of the country can nurture a place-based education classroom.
