Ella Yang, a first-generation Korean-American and native New Yorker, is a mostly self-taught painter based in Brooklyn, New York. She takes great pleasure in traditional methods of oil painting, especially working "en plein air," i.e. on site with a portable easel. When not roaming the streets of Brooklyn or traveling to find painting motifs, Yang loves to paint in her studio near the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn. Yang shows her work regularly in solo and group exhibitions in the New York City area and on web-based platforms. Her paintings are in private collections in the USA, Hong Kong, Italy, France, and Austria, and in a number of corporate collections. Three of her paintings were selected by the Art in Embassies program of the U.S. State Department to be displayed at the U.S. Embassy in Geneva, Switzerland, 2014-18. In the summer of 2006, she was awarded an artist residency at the internationally recognized Vermont Studio Center. She is honored to be included in the book "100 New York Painters," by C.M. Dantzic, (Schiffer Books, 2006). Yang has curated and organized art exhibitions in New York City. She is a graduate of Yale College and Columbia University's School of Business.
