About the speaker

Ella Richards

Ella has lived in Greenwich Village her entire adult life. She feels it’s presence every day in her art and in her soul. For her, art is a unique medium where emotion and experience are shared and she strives to create art that strikes an emotional chord. She believes that the art you choose for your environment is important, like a relationship, and is a direct reminder of why we get up every morning — to find happiness. Happiness means something different to everyone, but she likes to share things that make her happy and she hopes they touch you, too.
