Each week on “Arts Unleashed” Ellen Cottrill brings you the hidden art gems throughout Jacksonville and Northeast Florida.

Her artistic process consists in layers of paint studying the harmony in colors, composition and light. Her inspiration comes mainly from nature, water is her favorite element of study. Light has an important role in her studies of color.
She is been represented by local galleries and galleries through all the country and her artwork has been exhibited in Mexico and the US.
“I believe feelings can be transmitted through color and composition. There is so much poetry on color alone that I can’t resist but try to combine and arrange tones and shapes in different ways, creating or recreating a story. It is impressing to me how much I can share with the world with my pieces, my love for nature especially the ocean, my journey seeking peace on the waves, the air, the sounds and of course the colors that surround me”
Tiffany Manning has been a portrait photographer for 10 years and picked up Abstract painting three years ago. She has a fascination with bold color and energetic movement.
