E.de Tournillon

Ellen R. deTournillon

Born and raised in Charleston SC

I have the pleasure of returning to Painting after a 40 year hiatus. During this time my husband and I have raised 2 daughters and have been blessed with two grandsons and a great grandson.

                After fifty- five years of marriage, we have our nest to ourselves again.

I wanted to return to painting … my passion.

I am self taught and find it accelerating when I discover an avenue to enhance my paintings.  Putting the everyday activities and responsibilities aside I become engulfed with the desire of creating a work of art, from a blank canvas.  I have a special interest in creating African American Art. Being a native of Charleston, I have included the historical beauty of this holy city as my eyes see it.
