Ellen Giggenbach

Ellen Giggenbach was born in Augsburg, Southern Germany and at a young age immigrated to New Zealand, where she is now based in Wellington.

During the artist’s career as a freelance graphic designer her works have been licensed for a number of companies on an extensive variety of products including fabrics and clothing, stationery items, books and packaging, bags and homewares.

Recently Ellen has focused on producing one-off artworks reflecting interests and influences ranging from the traditional folk art of her European heritage, to her affinity with mid century abstract modernism, illustration and design.
