Since 2000, Ellen Coup has been beautifying buildings and spaces with her painted murals using Resene products, alongside making works on canvas in both oil paint and Resene paints.
Her work spans a range of sites and sizes, from exterior public projects several hundreds of square metres in area to interior private artworks under 10 square metres and many works in between. She has worked with schools, facilitating projects solely displaying children’s art, such as her first project at Newtown School, designing art that incorporates elements of children’s art, such as at Otari and Khandallah Schools or fully designing and painting her own work for school communities to enjoy, such as her most recent work at Newtown School.
Ellen has also made a number of ‘Decor and Design’ projects, Signage, Wallpaper, Floor Tiles, and other custom work that falls into the ‘commercial art’ space. As murals are invariably commissioned artworks, Ellen utilises a consultation and design process enabling the client to have their concepts and aspirations for the artwork explored. She then can offer a per metre square quote or design a work that is achievable for the clients budget. With client satisfaction of paramount importance, Ellen has a collection of delighted clients.
Working primarily in Resene Lumbersider on wooden and concrete surfaces, Ellen makes good use of Resene Paint Effects Medium and likes to finish works with an acrylic protective clear coat like Resene Clearcoat UVS, or Resene Concrete Clear if a matte finish is required. Resene SpaceCote, Resene FX Metallics and Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path have also featured in her projects where applicable.
A wide range of artists are using Resene paints in their work, on everything from interior paintings to tactile artworks and mural masterpieces.
