Meet the artist

   Ted Michener has been painting for most of his life. For him it is a daily practice and the vitality and colourful images reflect his surroundings and seaside home. His earliest training as a teenager was at the Doon School of Fine Arts in Kitchener, Ontario during six summers. While there he was fortunate to have studied with several renowned artists including A.J.Casson , Jock Macdonald and Carl Schaeffer. 

After graduating with honours from the Ontario College of Art and Design, he free-lanced out of Toronto, and collaborated with Mendola Ltd. an artist’s agency in New York City for many years. For some time Ted taught at his Alma Mater in the evenings as well as Central Tech and Sheridan College in Etobicoke.

 He has illustrated for The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, TV Guide, and Readers Digest. Aside from being the recipient of many editorial and commercial art awards, Ted has received a Canada Council Grant to teach in Bacalar, Mexico and also received an Artist in Residency through The Masterworks program in Bermuda. 

He is currently represented by the Cobalt Gallery in St. John, The Breakwater gallery in Eastport Maine, and also shows many works through The Gables Restaurant and Gallery in St Andrews. Ted is a member of the Ontario Society of Artists, The Federation of Canadian Artists, The Association of Canadian Cartoonists  and a creative fine arts  group dubbed “Dash”, which consists of eight New Brunswick artists working in a variety of mediums. Just to keep his hand in and the pressure on, he gleefully draws editorial cartoons for The St Croix Courier, a local community paper, and has been doing so for three decades.
