Jess Ellis is the creative behind Ranger Studio.

After majoring in Fine Arts at Whitecliffe, Jess wanted to create a space — an environment to cater for all creative needs, while inspiring people to gather, learn and create. 

She has been hosting workshops for over eight years and opened pop-up spaces around Auckland and the BOP. Ranger finally landed its dream space, in the old Beach Motors building; with grungy stamp-pressed walls, giant ceiling beams and some seriously inspiring vibes. The space is full of creative energy and is where Jess hosts workshops from Rookies (aged 5-12 years), to adults Sip & Create evenings and private bookings. Jess is currently finishing off her Art Therapy studies and is excited to take on new clients in early 2023. She also loves graphic design and is passionate about working with local businesses to elevate their vibe, from smaller jobs, such as business cards and posters to commercial projects, murals and digital. Get in touch for more information.

Jess is inspired by nature, time and connection and she has exhibited her work in a number of solo shows in Auckland and at the Auckland Art Fair. Her new exhibition of work will be on show in 2023, so follow along the Ranger journey online and pop-in to check out the studio.
