Hello, my name is John Ellis. I am retired after 22 years working in the advertising department of a large west coast newspaper. now I am able to devote time to photography and watercolor painting. It is the process and challenge that I enjoy so much. I hope viewing the results of my efforts will be to you a source of joy as well.
I am married to perhaps the most patient woman on the planet - my wife Rebecca Lynn. We have been happily married since April 18th, 1998. We met via the Internet; she in Austin, TX and I in Vancouver, WA. Becky is a retired Army Major, a veteran of 20 years service in the Army Nurse Corps. She is now a professor emeritus of Nursing at our local college, having retired in June 2014.
Nana's Watercolor Corner is in honor of my mother, Marti, who passed away at the age of 91 on April 1, 2012. She was a prolific watercolor artist who never got around to showing her art. So I offer you her gallery to enjoy. God bless!
