Ellen has been acting for the last ten years after following a creative path which included being part of a 90's pop duo, an illustrator and animator.
As well as continually developing through workshops and classes, Ellen completed two courses of Actor training with Red Ladder and her involvement led to working in their community show Promised Land. She has worked extensively with Freedom Studios in Bradford on multi-role and devising projects, plus has done physical and movement work with the Yorkshire Life Aquatic.
Recent highlights include playing Margaret Thatcher in David Allison's “Dishonour” for Slung Low Shorts, an avenging bespectacled secretary in Lisa Holdsworth's “No More Fairies” and playing Angela Merkel's conscience as a fun fur toucan hand puppet called Franz.
Ellen continues to sing, plays simple ukulele and practises the accordion when her neighbours are otherwise engaged.
