Recently she has expanded her practice of visual storytelling to writing and illustrating books for children and adults. Ellen illustrated the children’s book, Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity published by the Museum of Modern Art and wrote and illustrated, Recipes for Good Luck published by Chronicle Books.
