Barbara Ellison has been fortunate to be able to combine five of her loves – photography, art, gardening, travel and teaching – into her work. She has traveled throughout the US, lecturing and instructing on various photographic topics such as botanical and macro photography, printing and alternative processes.

From photographing the Kentucky Derby to Presidential inaugurals, she has enjoyed the challenge of capturing the special moment and making it everlasting through her creative prints. She has printed on wood, rice paper, metal and silk to give her images a special look. When her husband started a species orchid business, she began enhancing her orchid images with pastels. She then expanded her artistic vision with photos to include mixed media pieces made with paints and wax, as well as creating a series of folding books. She has shown her work in galleries throughout the East Coast and in various publications.
