Ellen Rice began painting as a small child, sitting across the dining room table from her mother, a Corcoran student who loved to volunteer her drawings for good causes.
Ellen’s first love was drawing ballerinas and horses, then family pets, portraits of her sisters and the many aspects of life around her. She won her first award in the sixth grade for a Maryland safety poster she created and sold her first painting as a sophomore in high school to a fellow art student. It was enough money to get a bus to her summer job in Rehoboth Beach.
Today one of the East Coast’s most collected artists, Ellen’s paintings are found in private homes and government and corporate collections throughout the United States and abroad
