Profile: Ellen Bibb

Ellen Parker Bibb graduated from Auburn University in 1987 with a B.F.A. degree in graphic design and a background in painting that provided the groundwork for a parallel fine arts career. With over 30 years experience as an award-winning graphic designer in Nashville, she has continued to develop her images in creative painting. In reference to her paintings, Bibb says “I choose images that provide a visual escape from my daily routine. Concentration on unexpected color and active brush strokes provide a framework for me to define images. My objective is a painting that will offer the viewer the same emotion it offered me in the creative process.”
