Collection: Ella Valcov

Ella Valcov’s journey as an artist began in her childhood. Born in 1980’s in USSR, Ella showed interest in nature and art from an early age. 

In 1999 Ella’s family immigrated to Toronto, Canada. With no English, friends, and having to attend a new school, it was a difficult time in her life. Three years later she went on to pursue a career in nursing, later becoming a Wound Specialist nurse. Through the years of providing care to those in need, Ella was exposed to a broad spectrum of human emotion that influences her painting today. During this period, Ella had several important experiences that would move her toward a career as a painter. Traveling through Italy and Spain, Ella was deeply moved by the richness of culture and works of Old Masters, landscapes and nature. Her heart stirred, and she felt an impending need to express an array of experienced emotions through art.  

The final impetus came when Ella sustained a herniated disk deeming her immobile for a few weeks at the beginning of 2020. While confined to bed, she started drawing with charcoal, and later on she transitioned to acrylic paint and started painting in earnest. Ella took two online workshops from the artists she admires, and started creating abstract expressionistic paintings from her newly devised home studio. 

Ella employs bold colours, and tells a story as each layer unravels in its creation. Each painting vibrates with emotion and energy, engaging the mind and the eye. “I endeavor to create paintings that are entertaining and dimensional,” the artist says, “but also elegant”.
