About ellen

Thank you for stopping by ! Here is a little info on yours truly! or just skip to the video :)

I am an artist , backsmith most of time  occasionally I model my forged fashion as well as fun pinup photo shoots I also teach part time at a college and teach yoga. I have my own business  Iron maiden forge  where i make my wearable metal attire along with other commission pieces to make a few dollars , just an endless hustle. I do events as well an runway shows with my " iron maiden " ladies. I see my work as more of a performance than a " here is my brand purchase now."  Unless forged corsets become the next trend. I also make large scale drawings  and do whatever else inspires me or keeps the brain ghosts at bay.

Common questions:
I work in metal  and the closest title  would be " artist blackmith " I have a full metal shop where I have my forge and anvil. I don't shoe horses as you can probably see ( kicked by a model is less damaging than getting kicked by a horse ) and as of now, i don't have much interest in making swords or knives. I don't weld bridges and I'm not the chick from flash dance. I back assed (technical life term) my way in the blacksmith community.  I  started working in metal while i was in  my over priced undergrad and graduate school; I didn't wake one day like " must hammer on metal "  and no my dad or grandad wasn't a blacksmith.  I create empowering forged fashion and I teach workshops so other people can make cool badass stuff.

Upcoming excitement:
Surviving the apocalypse season 3 !  If you want to follow my journey along with  other amazing artists I work with along the way. I will post  progress videos , photos, behind the scenes stuff we do at shoots and in the shop. I will  probably share some photos from my secret pin up stash as well as ladies in metal. Definitely expect behind the scenes with my models, Who knows! Anyway should be fun and filled with anxiety ! Stay tuned or don't, I'm not here to tell you how to life your life ;)
