About the artist
Born and raised in New Jersey, Ted Clemens grew up surrounded by Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Meyersville. After high school, he went on to pursue an education at duCret School of Art in Plainfield, NJ.
A career in graphic design took him first to Utah, then Texas where he now spends as much time as possible in front of an easel, both indoors and out. Ted gets much of his inspiration in the landscapes of the southwest; as well as at living history events in which he and his wife participate.

While subject matter inspires Ted, painting is more about design and the application of paint. This is what he explores in his work. “I’m a copyist by nature, but have learned to aim not for realism, but a realistic impression.”

Ted and his wife, Becky raised three children in the Lone Star state and live in Sachse.
