Ellen Brown Workman (later McCready) (1882-1973) studied at the Glasgow School of Art, and first exhibited with the Society of Women Artists in 1901 and at the Royal Academy, London, in 1903. She studied in Paris at the studio of James McNeill Whistler, and in the 1920s and 1930s she exhibited several pieces at the Paris Salon and the Fine Art Society in London. She exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) in Dublin between 1927 and 1930.

After her marriage, her surname changed to McCready, and she seems to have used the name 'Nellie' more than Ellen. She spent most of her adult life in Belfast.

Almost forgotten for many years, we were lucky enough to purchase a number of her pieces, which have all found new homes where they can be loved and admired.

This charcoal drawing is almost certainly a self portrait, as we have some of her exquisite notebooks in which the same face appears many times. Beautifully framed with archival quality materials. 22 x 28cm

Like most of the artworks on this website, this piece is on display in our Clare Street shop.
