An artist since childhood, Ellen Dreibelbis has worked in watercolor, printmaking, acrylics and textiles before finding her way to pastels. She has always loved to draw, and was delighted to find this way of combining drawing and painting, and by the immediacy of the results. Dreibelbis' focus is on paintings of figures and portraits. Her work has been featured in many top national and international juried shows including the American Academy of Women Artists Show, the Degas Pastel Society Show, and the Pastel Society of the West Coast Show, winning awards at the International Association of Pastel Societies, the Pastel Society of America, the Sierra Pastel Society and the Associated Pastelists on the Web.

She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and the Sierra Pastel Society. Her biography is featured in Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the West, and the British International Dictionary of Biography. Her pastel paintings were the subject of a feature article in the December 2002 issue of American Artist Magazine, "Figures and Portraits with Feeling".
