My name is Esther Noel Ellis and I am 16 years old. I have a passion for beauty and wonder in our world and I find that I can really fulfill my desire to be awed by it all through my ability to draw creation on paper. I especially adore big-picture scenery as it reminds me of the enormity of the earth and beauty of that enormity. For example, I like drawing images of mountains and rivers and trees and then making it into an image of Tahoe, California. Drawing nature gives me a deep peace, knowing that that which I am drawing is only a very small fraction of how great and awesome the masterpiece of the one who made it in the first place is..the masterpiece of God.
