For the past 7 years Ellen has studied the beautiful sacred and intricate Tibetan Buddhist art form of Thangka Painting.
She has been very blessed to study with teacher Carmen Mensink in her private art studio in Amsterdam and at her retreats in Asia.
Ellen has also studied with resident artist Ray Furminger at The Chenrezig Art Studio in Australia.
She has also had the great privilege to attend art retreats with the world renowned Master Thangka Artist Andy Weber.
All three of these incredible artists teach Tibetan style of art in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition.
*** Ellen does not sell her Buddhist artwork. It is purely a creative and spiritual outlet for her and part of her meditation practice.
It is also part of her exploration, fascination and appreciation for Tibetan Buddhism, arts, culture and philosophy. ***
