Biography

Ella Ranfft, born in 1996 in Leeds, England, immigrated to New Zealand when she was a young child. Before studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design (2015 – 2018), she attended a large number of painting and life drawing classes to initiate the development of her painting practice, as an artist who investigates the figure. 

 

Today, she is a multi-media artist concerned with the self-portrait as a tool to study the human form.

 

Alongside her painting practice she is also investigating textile arts, through the use of crochet, embroidery, and needlework.
