meet c.s.ellington


welcome to my WordPress blog. I am a contemporary painter of primarily abstract art writing about art and the art of life, at this point only occasionally. I have four decades of my own life within me and am a mother of three wonderful kids whose names have inspired my own.

c.s.ellington is a combination of the names of my children. Much of my life has been devoted to their lives, though new chapters are beginning. I believe in adventure. I believe in love. I believe that each person ultimately knows what they need in life. I have loved listening to my children.

In the writings on my blog, I want to include stories. I have many. I remember being in my early twenties and spending quite a lot of time with my maternal grandmother, Lola, and listening to her stories. There was an endless supply. I sat for hours at a time taking the stories in. I enjoyed her company so very much and admired the life she had built. I wanted something like that, I wanted more stories. About twenty years later, I have them. And the confidence in myself to write out anything I wish. Thanks for sharing your life with me by being here.

There were times in my twenties and thirties I was an unusually private person. I am not so much that way, anymore. I started asking myself who I was sharing my life with, who I was allowing to have access into my life. I decided I wanted to grow to become a more full person and be available to a greater degree in relationships. The thinking evolved and the path appeared. I am happy you are here. Welcome to my life, in the process you may learn a little about art.

Smiles ~

  1. I had the pleasure of meeting Camille at her space in front of my store on the McKinney square during the 2017 Arts In Bloom event. She gifted me one of her paintings which made its way to my house on Cape Cod. I look at it so often, as do our houseguests, and I feel so honored to share the beauty of Camille’s work through this one treasured piece. Thank you Camille, for sharing your gift and yourself with those of us who truly appreciate your story and your talent. Patty Streber
