Ella Frears is a poet, visual artist and curator living in London. Her work has benefited from regular shifts in subject and influence; this is a result of a number of creative writing jobs and residencies in her early career including Tate Britain, the National Trust and Royal Holloway University.
This year the Arts Foundation celebrates its 25th anniversary by shortlisting 25 artists for their prestigious awards. Five will be selected to receive the £10,000 fellowship with the runners up each receiving £1,000. The winners will be announced at a special party to celebrate the foundation, its fellows and supporters in February.
