Ellen Shattuck Pierce

Ellen Shattuck Pierce is an artist, teacher, and long-time resident of Boston, MA.  She grew up in Rutland, VT and moved to Boston to pursue her art career.  She went to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, graduated from UMass Boston, and received her Ed.M in Arts Education from Harvard.  Being part Canadian, Pierce longed to spend time in Canada and moved to Toronto to complete her MFA at York University.  During this time, Nunavut Arctic College in Iqaluit, Nunavut invited her to teach a month-long printmaking course.  The stark landscape and the rich stories told in the Inuit artists’ work has had a lasting impact on Pierce’s art.  After returning to Iqaluit a second time, Pierce settled in Boston where she teaches art to elementary students in Cambridge and works in her studio.  She shares a home with her husband, two teen boys, a dog and a cat.
