Ellie Waters (b.1992) is a British born artist based between Aotearoa, New Zealand and Northern England. She studied Fine Arts at The University of Canterbury (NZ), graduating with a Post Graduate Diploma in Photography, in 2021. 
With her own history of emigration, through her work she explores notions of home, belonging and how we relate to the lands which we inhabit. She is currently associated with the Ebor Studio group, Greater Manchester (UK) where she is working on various long-term, social documentary projects.

Alongside her creative practice, she works as a Project Worker for the Children's charity Barnardo's, where she facilitates and assists children and young people with additional needs accessing activities throughout Greater Manchester.
In 2023, she developed her own photography workshop, 'My Place', in which she has worked with various organisations and charities, promoting arts for wellbeing across the North West of England. For further information on workshops, please get in touch via the email below.
