Elli McNall was raised in Columbia, SC, where she cultivated a love of art, color, and paper hoarding early on. She earned a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Winthrop University in 2015. She currently lives in Knoxville, TN, where she works as a painting instructor with her husband, Corey. Elli is an up and coming maximalist mixed media artist whose work is as colorful and whimsical as it is intricately layered and time consuming. She is constantly inspired by tending to her garden, exploring in nature, and playing with children everyday as a nanny. She loves the lines, textures, and patterns found in life, and how they can overlap to create new possibilities. Elli is devoted to hard work, recycling and imagination!
