Ellen Himic knew from the age of fifteen that she was destined to be an artist. Fascinated by small-scale sculpture, Ellen immersed herself in various art forms throughout her childhood. Her love of the arts led her to study different mediums at the esteemed Tyler School of Art, known internationally for its world-renowned professors and emerging technologies. It was through this intense education that Himic not only developed an incredible knowledge of computer-aided design (CAD) but also cultivated extraordinary engineering abilities, enabling her to create unique snap-fit mechanisms, which would later become a beloved feature of her signature collection.
After graduating from the appraised program with numerous awards and accolades, Ellen spent several years as an apprentice to a widely respected jewelry craftsman.
