Ellie Riley Ward is a multimedia artist working primarily in three dimensions. She loves to incorporate molecular elements into her work, and right now she is exploring how biology informs human identity through art. Ellie will complete a dual degree in Fine Arts and Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Michigan in 2021. She graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy in 2016. Currently, Ellie is working on a set of 3D-printed wearables.

In her free time, Ellie loves to ski, bike, windsurf, and do anything outdoors. She holds a 200-hour yoga teacher’s certificate, and enjoys ballroom dancing. She does not like writing about herself in the third person.
