Ellen McMahon

Ellen McMahon works as an artist, designer, writer, educator and project director to bridge the gaps between art, design and environmental issues. In 2007, she received a Fulbright Scholar’s Grant to work with the Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. Beginning in 2010, she served as project director and co-editor of an interdisciplinary collaborative faculty/student research project, which culminated in the book Ground|Water: The Art, Design and Science of a Dry River. McMahon’s 2012 photographic series “Phenotypes: Observable Traits, Strange Strangers” is inspired by the history of taxonomy as it reflects the instability of scientific truth over time. Her opinion pieces about the role of design in shaping the public’s understanding and response to climate change were published this year in Pacific Standard and the Huffington Post. McMahon has a BS in Biology from Southern Oregon State, an MS in Scientific Illustration from The University of Arizona and an MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College of Fine Art. She is a professor of Art, Illustration and Graphic Design in the School of Art at The University of Arizona.
