Ellen Grieg is a textile artist living and working in Oslo, Norway. For more than 25 years she ran the textile workshops at the National College of Art and Design, and later the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, in Oslo. Throughout her career in arts education Grieg has undertaken an extensive research into colours and dyes in natural and synthetic fibres based on well-known techniques such as batik and plangi on naval mooring ropes. Her works have in recent years evolved from studies within two dimensions to assume three-dimensional sculptural qualities

Ellen Grieg is represented in the collection of the National Museum of Art and Design and Arts Council Norway as well as many public and private collections. Public commissions include the Ministry of Climate and Environment as well as hospitals, prisons, and schools in Norway.
