Ellen Grieg has for more than 25 years been running the textile workshops at Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
Throughout her career in arts education Grieg has undertaken an extensive research into colours and dyes in natural and synthetic fibres based on well-known techniques such as batik and plangi on naval mooring ropes.
Her works have in recent years evolved from studies within two dimensions to assume three-dimensional sculptural qualities.
Recent solo exhibitions include Gallery Lynx, Oslo and Studio 17, Stavanger as well as numerous group shows in Norway and Northern Europe.
Ellen Grieg is represented in the collection of the National Museum of Art and Design and the Arts Council Norway as well as regional public and private collections.
Public commissions include the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment as well as hospitals, prisons and schools in Norway.
