Ted Ellis, American

A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Ted Ellis was greatly influenced by his hometown's style and artistic exuberance. "I prefer to paint subjects that are representative of many facets of American life. Among my favorites to paint are portraits, landscapes, and seascapes."
As a self-taught artist, Ted's style is a blend of realism and impressionism. His artwork is nostalgic and uplifting. From an outdoor baptism to a lawyer arguing her case before a judge, Ted's art celebrates the traditional values of African American culture.

The increasing popularity of his work has resulted in many private and corporate commissions from Avon Products, Inc., the New Orleans Black Tourism Network, the Baton Rouge Black Pages Directory, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. to name just a few. Ted's work is also exhibited at major colleges and has been featured on the national television program "Imagination Island."

In 1986, Ted Ellis left his position as a chemist to pursue his lifelong dream to draw and paint. Ted has dedicated all his creative energy and time into his artistic calling. "I take pride and pleasure in capturing the essence of a particular subject and manifesting it on canvas, knowing it will last as an eternal memory."
