Dominique Ellis received her M.F.A. in Printmaking at Tyler School of Art in 2013. She was awarded a U.S. Fulbright student scholarship for Egypt, as well as an Arabic language grant for 2009-2010 and was based in Cairo, Egypt. She served as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco, from 2006-2008, working for the Moroccan Ministry of Handicrafts. Ellis’ visual practice and research investigates global craft traditions, architecture, and history.  Her interdisciplinary practice explores storytelling through oral history, documentary photography, and installations examining urban blight, social change, and nostalgia.  Recent research interests are focused on the economics of craft, industry, and family in the 19th and early 20th century. She is currently working on a documentary project: The Belt Driven Years.
