Everyone should have an alienbuddy


Ellen Jantzen was born and raised in St. Louis Missouri. Her first college degree was in graphic arts; later emphasizing fine art. In 1992, after a move to Los Angeles California, she graduated FIDM (the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) with an advanced degree in fashion. She worked for several years at Mattel Toy Company as a senior project designer, but became disillusioned with the corporate world and longed for a more creative outlet. Having been trained in computer design while at Mattel, she set about to learn Photoshop.

As digital technology advanced and cameras were producing excellent resolution, she found her perfect medium. It was a true confluence of technical advancements and creative desire that culminated in her current explorations in photo inspired art using both a camera to capture images and a computer to alter and manipulate the pieces.
