Ted, was born and raised in Chicago, then lived in Arizona, Oregon and now resides in Missouri. He has traveled extensively in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.
Ted continually studies all aspects of art and photography, "you can never stop learning." He is a self-taught artist who brings a different perspective to art and photography;
“Art and photography are a creative adventure to be approached with exuberance, imagination, fun and not limited to one’s mind.”
"The individual experience of viewing an image is a creative adventure which can generate different emotions from each viewer, when this happens, that's when the artists created image has reached the viewer and reaching the viewer, for me, is what it's all about."
Ted's other interests are history, the outdoors, boating, humor, computers and is the author of the best selling book, “American Military Patch Guide.” He is currently working on a few table top photography books.
Ted is an accomplished award winning photographer and artist. Ted's work has been published in national and local publications, with many of his works in private collections and Galleries.
