Ella Scholtens – Origineel Portret ‘Alex’



Alex – Original fashion illustration portrait 50×70

Haarlem based, Ella produces original one off ink based fashion portraits exclusively for us at Ekster & Jay that we showcase in store and now online. Ellas work also often features on TV and various publications such as VT Wonen.


Using Indian Ink, watercolour paint or whatever she tends to experiment with at the time and working on a beautiful artistic whim, she produces stunning quality portraits that resemble individual real women and her signature negative space allows the viewer to fill in the missing brush strokes to form the face in a dream like quality.

We adore Ella’s work our clients from all over the world are extremely delighted owning a true original from Ella Scholtens.


Alex is framed within a black MDF frame with glass 50x70cm


“I often work with ink because you have to work accurately with it. A silence is needed for that, in that silence I can make contact with clear seeing and drawing.  In addition, I also work precisely in the hustle and bustle: quick drawing whilst using my intuition, but then quickly. No time for searching: look and draw accurately in the flow”. – Ella Scholtens.
