Ellen McIntosh-Green is a visual artist and writer who lives in Simcoe, Ontario. She was Director and Curator of the Lynnwood Arts Centre [now the Norfolk Arts Centre] in Simcoe for almost twenty years. In that position she curated an exhibition of Elizabeth Simcoe's paintings, a project which convinced her that Simcoe was no ordinary, upper class English dabbler. Ellen wrote two academic papers on Elizabeth Simcoe, one on her paintings, and one on her journals. In the late 1980's she received a Canada Arts Council grant to research Elizabeth Simcoe's documents in England. Currently Ellen devotes herself to writing and painting in Norfolk County, Ontario.
