THERE LIVES AN OCEAN IN EACH OF US.
WITH 60-70% WATER IN OUR BODIES AND A SALINITY CLOSE TO SEA WATER,
WE ARE ABLE TO FEEL THE PULL OF THE MOON.
LET THE OCEAN GUIDE YOU HOME,
LET HER BE THE MIRROR TO YOUR SOULD.
WHETHER SHE IS STILL OR STORM,
SHE REFLECTS A THOUSAND LIGHTS.
ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH TO WATCH?
DO YOU DARE TO EMPTY YOUR CUP AND FILL IT WITH THE OCEAN?
A THOUSAND WONDERS AWAIT.
My artwork is inspired by
the waves and spirals
of life and the oceans.
Hei! My name is Ellen and I'm the face behind WILD SELKIE.
When I was 26, I moved to Iceland, where I lived in the Westfjords of Iceland. A place I still consider my second home and that changed my life completely.
2 years later, in July 2020 I moved to the most beautiful fjord of Norway, close to the country's West Cape.
I have a background in Geology and Marine Biology and my greatest accomplishment is becoming a whale watching guide. Right on the frontline of Mother Earths battle to create a deeper relation with its people.
Giving a guiding hand in meeting, learning and caring about the ocean's mythical inhabitants and forging a promise. The promise of taking better care of our home.
As a marine scientist, I'm incredibly fascinated by our oceans and the power that they hold. The mysteries that lie under the surface are an amazing source of inspiration.
I'm a passionate (amateur) artist and creator.
On a journey into myself and out into the world.
The wild landscape of the North, with its big contrasts and unapologetic weather, is an endless source of inspiration for me. The biggest metaphor, the largest mirror of life.
