Let’s meet. My name is Ellie Grin and here is Our Story.
I have been fascinated by art ever since I can remember. Since I was a child I have been making things with my hands and trying to bring creativity back into the world. I have tried many things: scrapbooking, polymer clay jewelry making, drawing, cloth designing, and using varying forms of media for handcraft projects. Finally, I was able to focus my passion for art when I went to Bridgeview school in New York, and my hobby turned into so much more.
I found my true love several years ago when I discovered painting on glass. Any piece of glass can be transformed into a work of art just by layering a few strokes of paint on top of each other. Glasses, dishware, windows, doors, or knick-knacks all change once you add some creativity and color. I enjoy making painted glassware into personalized gifts for my loved ones. Do-it-yourself projects really give you the chance to put yourself into the work, and I think that’s priceless.
My art has been heavily influenced by the bright and bustling life of New York. Every artist has to unlock their own inspiration. It can come from a place like it did for me, or it can come from nature, family, animals, love, and anything else that motivates you.
What I’ve found in making art and gifts for others is that there simply aren’t enough supplies to suit my needs. I realized that I could be a part of the solution by offering an online opportunity to purchase high-quality, affordable modern art supplies and materials to artists everywhere. I supplement this by making blogs and how-tos for art projects and other interesting DIY tips. Artistro brand has been created.
