Featured Artist: Lilellen Boroch

Lilellen (Ellen) Boroch is a native Californian whose gift for creating art began developing at a very early age. Her love for art began at Sycamore Elementary School in Claremont, California, where she would hurry through her assignments so she could draw pictures in her notebooks. Having limited professional training, her pieces reflect her pure talent and unique perspective.

Painting mostly in watercolors and mixed media, Ellen is drawn primarily to figure, color and flat perspective that are simple and clean. However, her joyous and playful nature can be seen in her drawings. Ellen is always open to experimenting with new mediums as she truly has a passion for art. She also possesses a keen eye for photography. She has experience in oil, acrylic, collage and more.

Ellen painted with a group of artists in Crestline for several years. She met once a week at the home of her mentor, Thomas Hickson, for critique, honesty, and insight to motivate her and nurture her talent. She quotes, "Painting has helped me find my place in life." Now on Mondays she can be found painting with award winning artist Sylvia Mergerdichian and the Art Box artists in Upland where Sylvia "encourages each artist to follow his or her calling."

Ellen's technique and skills have evolved immensely and her subject matter has transformed from flowers and landscapes to the figurative and portraiture which strives to capture beauty in everyday life and the emotion of people. She loves to paint from old black and white photos and will often take an ordinary photograph and bring it to life with color and a style all her own.

Ellen enjoys living in Lake Arrowhead where she paints daily. She enjoys spending time outdoors, doing crosswords and puzzles and cherishes time with her husband, son, his wife and her grandson. Please visit her website at www.ellenboroch.com. You can contact her at eboroch@gmail.com .
