Eleanor Royall Parker
Eleanor currently lives in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina where she grew up on the waters of the low country. She and her husband Russ raised their family of three boys on the marsh waters of Shem Creek where they continue to enjoy many outdoor activities.
Eleanor has painted for many years, but in the last three years has taken a more serious interest in perfecting her craft. Eleanor is most interested in the sky and its varied light effects on the waters and marshlands that she is so familiar with. Eleanor has been lucky enough to study under many notable artists with amazing skills in the use of light, and this study has enhanced her ability to capture that light in her oil paintings. Eleanor has studied under Elizabeth Bronson, who has been a great mentor, and source of encouragement. She has also attended workshops taught by Scott Christensen. Eleanor enjoys plein aire painting with a group of local artist, but most of her works are done in the studio.
