Born in London, Ella Porter completed her Foundation Diploma, specialising in Drawing, at Camberwell College of Art, in 2011. She then studied for a BA degree in Painting and Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2014. Following her BA and the GSA fire of 2014, she was awarded a Phoenix Bursary and received the NL Culture prize, for which she produced a solo exhibition. Ella went on to set up a studio in London and began working with clay which led to her Diploma in Ceramics at the CityLit, 2017. In 2019 she began her MA at The Royal College of Art, which has been supported by a QEST scholarship from The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust.
Ella’s current practice is studio based and has plans to further expand her research through residencies and research fellowships. She has ambitions to work on a larger scale through commissions in the public and private realm. Ella welcomes conversations with galleries and is interested in collaborations with those in the fields of Architecture, Museums and Archaeology.
