Danielle Garza a.k.a. Ellierex (b. 1985) is a Los Angeles-based mixed media artist. Wildly swirled colors and kaleidoscopic designs of a psychedelic nature are the outcome of her painting, redefining the medium of handmade paper marbling. An aqueous surface painting technique produces patterns similar to smooth marble or other kinds of stone. She “hits the remix button” on traditional marbling by combining it with her own unique methods, and often collaging found paper, to create glimpses of surrealist fantasy worlds that entice viewers to get up close and personal with a contemplative or escapist experience.
Among Ellierex's creative achievements are large-scale installation public artworks, album covers for recording artists, print design for film and television, and exhibitions throughout galleries across the United States. She has works in private collections in New York City, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Sweden, and Australia.
