Hey, I'm Ellen.
I know this is where I'm supposed to tell you about myself, but instead, I'll just refer you to the collection of images below. These are the pictures that are tacked above my desk, taped into my sketchbook, or saved on my Desktop. In them, there are people and things that inspire me when I'm stuck in a rut, and center me when I'm feeling scattered. They'll probably do a better job of describing me than I would. 
PS - if you'd like to chat, my email is ehigh@umich.edu
