Ellen Shershow’s inspiration comes from a wide range of places, including but not limited to Vogue magazine, People magazine, reality TV, John Szarkowski, Joan Rivers, Dolly Parton, Steve Martin, Diane Arbus, Mad Men, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Best In Show, Woody Allen and Golden Gate Park at dawn. Ellen draws her color pallet from Dutch Renaissance painters, Gerard Dou, Rogier Van Der Weyden and Johannes Vermeer. Most of all, she is inspired by the Dog.

The dog is slobbery and kooky and soulful and precious. Next to Steve Martin, Jennifer Coolidge and Sarah Silverman, they are the funniest creatures in the world. We are enthralled by them, the gentle gaze, the unconditional love, the stories of dog as hero. Photographing senior dogs, dogs who are blind or deaf or hurting, is indeed close to Ellen’s heart.

She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and a Master of Fine Arts in Photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
