This week we take a look at the work of Ellie Petkau from the Ripples Art Group.

Ellie has been working with water colours and oil since about 1980. She originally teamed up with other notable local artists Nell Owens and Del-Marie Singh.


Ellie tells us that water colour has been her favourite medium as it has “taught her a lot of discipline… there’s not too much room for error.”

Ellie is a former children’s art program instructor at PDAC and still instructs from her home.

If you would like to contact Ellie, she can be reached at or for more info on the Ripples art group visit them at
