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.
