Ella Raphaëlle Dufrene is a French-Haitian-American visual artist and art therapist. Ella believes that art is our most primitive style of communication and expression, dating back to our earliest forms of art making in prehistoric cave paintings. Driven by the instinctual knowledge of the innate and powerful healing powers of art, Ella received her Masters in Art Therapy & Creativity Development from the Pratt Institute in 2015.
Deeply connected to the restorative flow and wisdom fostered by Mother Earth, Ella began exploring eco-art therapy techniques, and moving toward an ecological artistic context that emphasizes ritual, ceremony and connection to our Mother Earth. This led her to facilitate her first Eco-Art Therapy Retreat in 2016 in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia.
Currently, Ella is based out of Asheville, NC where she works as an art therapist in private practice. She has experience working with people on the autism spectrum, at risk youth, children and adults with special needs and developmental delays, drug/alcohol addiction, psychiatric rehabilitation, eating disorders, as well as adults and children in both individual and group settings. She is a former mentor at Guitars Over Guns and continues to volunteer on her spare time. Ella emphasizes a holistic approach to wellness and utilizes a playful ‘person first’ approach to therapy.
Ella has worked with people who felt disconnected from their happiness and uninspired by the pressures of life. Through the magic and science of art therapy, she’s seen them transform into happier, more curious, more satisfied versions of themselves.
All of those that know and work with Ella can feel her passion for the healing properties of nature, art, travel and movement. She approaches her day to day and work-life with a zest for life, a youthful spirit and a contagiously open mind.
Ella has been featured in exhibitions in Miami’s Wynwood Art District during Art Basel and in galleries including Jakmel Art Gallery, Performing Art Exchange (PAX), GAB Studios, Art Miami, and Arteamericas. Her art is currently featured at Sculpted Studios in Miami, Fl.
