Check out this great article about artist Dana Ellyn, who featured her work with us some time back! This article’s well written and you really get a vibrant feel for Dana’s work! Congrats Dana!
Before she moved into her sunny Mather studio, Ellyn rented a cheap but “unsavory” apartment in a then-rough area of Shaw. Buying a house in an equally less-than-ideal — but affordable — area of East Baltimore seemed a probable next step. But then she got the call that her lottery number had been picked for a spot in Mather — and that’s when, she says, everything changed.
