Elly Stern is a Vancouver-based mixed media animator specialising in stop motion. Elly spent her childhood in Tel Aviv, later moving to Toronto before returning to complete a BFA in animation from Massachusetts College of Art & Design. Elly recently relocated to Vancouver to work for Spotted Fawn Productions. Utilizing surrealism and a handmade approach, Elly’s animations often explore female issues and the internal body. She draws inspiration from her dreams and daydreams, and uses them to express the grittier, darker aspects of our existence and the humour that underlies this somber reality. Elly enjoy collecting trash for artistic purposes and finding beauty in the inconspicuous.
