Ellie Anolik has enjoyed the arts as long as she can remember. Before joining Spotted Rabbit Studio in April 2016, Ellie participated in the LifePrep program at Nazareth College, where she took ceramics and other art classes. Ellie is usually getting messy in the clay studio where she makes ceramic flowers and garden bells, although she also enjoys other artistic media such as felting and stuffing catnip birds.
Ellie is friendly, outgoing, and enjoys the spotlight. She can often be found at dances, hosting parties, and advocating for the non-profit organizations she is involved with. Ellie has multiple disabilities that primarily affect motor coordination and spatial orientation.
Outside of the studio Ellie is often out out with friends and family. She enjoys eating out, watching movies, and vacationing in Florida. On the weekends Ellie can frequently be found participating in 5K runs with her parents and going on dates with her boyfriend. Ellie enjoys spending time with her cat, Bellini, even though he meows all the time. Ellie lives with roommates in her own house in Rochester, NY.
