Hello and welcome, my name is Jenny Ellsworth and I create private and public sculptures using mostly found materials. Through this process of repurposing, I find it a rewarding challenge to create from found objects. These pieces inspire me by their past purpose and shape, and I try to keep their original look intact to tell the story of its first life.
I receive roughly 99% of my materials through friends, family, junkyards, scrap yards, and military scrap yards. I want to use pieces that no longer have a purpose and inspire people with my unique ideas to show the world another form of recycling.
I’m based just outside of Portland and tour the Pacific Northwest to display my work in galleries and art shows. I’m available for interior design and home decorating, garden sculptures, public sculptures, as well as commissioned and independent projects. Contact me to discuss your ideas.
Currently thriving in Oregon City, the native Oregonian has been experimenting with metal since 2004. During 2006, and armed with a tiny portfolio, Jenny Ellsworth set out to become a local working artist. After planting herself firmly in the garden/nursery galleries of the Portland Metro Area, she was asked to join her first art show. Among others, Open Studios of Beavercreek hosted a Jenny Ellsworth Collection in 2009.
Jenny has crafted many custom pieces ranging from Garden Gates and stair-well railings to permanent fixtures in city parks. Currently, she showcases her art in various shops, galleries, and art events.
