Ellen Levy is an art jeweler and has been knitting for over 60 years. She finds combining both hobbies and avocations has been an absolute joy. She has been selling her jewelry at art jewelry boutiques and major art shows in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Austin, Texas and southern Florida for the past 15 years and presently sells locally at Whitespace and the Armory Art Center. Ellen Levy’s first career was as an environmental designer, designing sensory stimulation environments for multiply handicapped individuals. Her second career was capital goods sales for one of the two largest hospital equipment companies in the world. Her third career was as executive vice president of a clinical research company that performed research for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, from which she retired. Ellen returned to her love of design when she studied jewelry design at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, the Taos Institute of Art in Taos, New Mexico and from many Master Jewelry Artists throughout the United States. As a graduate student in design, Ellen was deeply influenced by the geometry, form and function of the architects and designers of the Bauhaus School. As a jewelry artist she has transformed her love of form and function into a unique combination of style, form, texture, and color.
