Ellen Eagle is an American artist, best known for her figure drawings and portraits in pastel. At an intimate scale, Eagle's subjects are friends, fellow artists, and professional models drawn from life by natural light. Her work is characterized by restraint of color, self-containment, and the depiction of her subjects' emotional states.
Eagle has exhibited at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton, New Jersey, Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Washington, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, National Academy of Design Museum in New York, Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, and has had solo exhibitions at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, Concordia College in Bronxville, New York, and the Tomasulo Gallery at Union County College in Cranford, New Jersey. She is represented by Forum Gallery.
Her work was the cover feature in the Pastel Journal of June, 2006, and has been included in American Artist Magazine and several publications on drawing. Eagle has received fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center, and twice earned grants from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation.
