Meighan Ellis is a multidisciplinary artist; with a background and professional training in photography, moving image, writing and more recently a re-acquaintance with clay.

Residing for a number of years in London, Sydney and Tokyo she contributed to various international print, academic and on-line publications-including Tokyo Art Beat. After a 20+ year hiatus into the analogue and digital realm of the still and moving image – she has returned to the ceramics studio, rekindling an early predilection for clay.

Meighan has exhibited strands of her work in New Zealand, America, Europe, Australia and Japan. Her photographic and ceramic works are held in private collections in New Zealand and overseas.
