Ellen Wood • Maruška

About the Art

Working in acrylics, Maruška integrates images of the 5 basic shapes of Sacred Geometry: spiral, straight line, square, circle and triangle into her pieces. Her artworks are representational as well as abstract.

Her muse insists she put a heart in each of her paintings. Maruška often works on 2 or 3 pieces at a time, working every space minute she can find now. She enjoys showing her art, meeting collectors, and her studio has been a popular stop on the Questa Art Tour for the last few years.

Ellen dabbled with art in her 20’s but did not have the confidence to pursue her talent then. After several decades as a professional and a mother, she was faced with early symptoms of Alzheimer’s. Ellen reversed this predilection with a program begun in 2004 of daily practices that she shares in two award-winning volumes of “The Secret Method for Growing Younger.”

She offers a FREE mp3 sample of her Affirmations CD to listen to often, just send a request to ellen@howtogrowyounger.com.

It was in 2020, during Covid, that she returned to painting and has painted every day since.
