Mary Ellen Sisulak attributes the vast and endless woods for making her the artist she is today.
“There is more to nature than just what we see above the ground,” Mary Ellen states. Her art truly reflects those wise words.
Living among the pristine Wisconsin woods for over forty years, Mary Ellen is still captivated by the many mysteries the forest holds. She discovered that using years of collected stones was the perfect jumping-off point for her mixed media art. Today, she finds excitement when interpreting both the limitless woods and natural stones into her work.
It’s not just the showcasing of her art that Mary Ellen is looking forward to at ACE 2019 this September. She is beyond thrilled to be a part of an event whose proceeds fund increased access to mental health services for those in need. Mary Ellen believes that building confidence and nurturing a person’s strengths from an early age is important to life-long wellness.
Mary Ellen is excited to share her new work with fellow artists and visitors of ACE 2019, as well as visiting the Chicago Botanic Garden. For someone whose work is inspired by stunning landscapes and nature, Mary Ellen is looking forward to setting her eyes on the beautiful, acclaimed gardens. We at ACE are certainly excited to see what may artistically inspire her from her visit.
