Story teller and star gazer, she's the curious soul full of surprises. Inspired by the opportunity of the creative process, she lives by the mantra that knowledge is power. As you've never seen her before, meet our latest Aje Insider, the one and only Sarah Ellen.
WHAT DRIVES YOUR CREATIVITY
My passion for telling stories. Diana Vreeland is a huge inspiration of mine, she taught me that images should move people and make them feel something by telling a story.
DESCRIBE YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS
Inspiration comes to me in different forms, music lyrics, art, an emotion, even a colour palette could inspire me. I don’t exactly have a ‘one size fits all’ creative process. Each process has to be tailored specifically to whatever I’m creating.
FILM TO YOU MEANS
Transporting into another world. I love feeling like a fly on a wall in someone else’s storyline.
FAVOURITE FILM OF ALL TIME
The Fifth Element - it's genius!
CAREER HIGHLIGHT SO FAR
Being on the cover of a magazine was a pretty huge pinch me moment!
YOU'RE MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT
Personal evolution as well as the evolution of my friends and loved ones around me.
SUSTAINABILITY TO YOU MEANS
Being aware of what Mother Nature sacrifices for us and making a conscious effort to do what we can to help build her up rather than break her down.
THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU
Curious, foodie, star gazer.
YOUR MOST INSPIRING PLACE TO BE
Anywhere in Italy... I love the aesthetic and culture!
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED
Knowledge is power...
YOUR HIDDEN TALENT
I can ride a unicycle! I learnt in circus class in school.
CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT
YOUR STAR SIGN TELLS US

MINIMALIST OR MAXIMALIST
Theres a time and place for both.
MOST TREASURED PIECE IN YOUR WARDROBE
My very first big spend which was a Prada bag that had the stars and a moon on it.
