Ellen Young O'Dwyer


Whether it is passion or fury, joy or melancholy, defiance or playfulness, the many moods and emotions of the human soul are personified with insightful determination.  “It is not enough to paint a captivating visual.  I want to appeal to the viewer’s psyche – to get them to FEEL the painting, and thus – to SHARE that emotion, if even for a brief moment.”
In the “Charisma” and “DragonHorse” series, Ellen takes her strongest artistic inspiration, the horse, and captures the magical and undying spirit; and graceful, yet powerful movement of this spellbinding creature and entwines them with the emotions of the human soul.
Raised and influenced by an Asian-American family of artists, Ellen has always explored and appreciated creative expression and the blending of cultures and ethnicities.  Early introductions to the Asian arts of brush painting and calligraphy stemmed from her Korean mother and aunt, both artists – Chung Soon Fwhang O'Dwyer and Duk Soon Fwhang, as well as a broad appreciation for all media through the renowned Salmagundi Club in NYC.
Ellen resides on a horse farm in central New Jersey and works in the pharmaceutical industry. She holds an MBA and a BS in Biology.
Ellen is an enthusiastic supporter of the local arts, managing charity events that drive awareness and cultural understanding, and that fund artistic growth and appreciation.  She actively participates in both corporate and cultural art exhibits, and her work is appreciated in growing numbers of private and corporate collections.
