Bio

Ted Stuckless was born in 1948 in Twillingate, an island community off Newfoundland’s northeast coast. Here he has continued to work, paint, and find inspiration all his life. Ted has earned a reputation as one of Newfoundland’s foremost painters. His work appears in private, public, and coporate collections around the world. He is a self-taught artist who works in oils, pen and ink, and wood. Much of his work captures and preserves the essence of Newfoundland’s traditional way of life. Many of his images also explore the spiritual, metaphysical, and biblical themes. Ted’s interests include the study of history and religion, music, inventing, and experimenting with electronics and pyramidology. His studio is in the upper loft of what was once his father’s general store. Built in 1914 along the shoreline of Twillingate’s North Side, the building is home to a distinctive pyramid-shaped skylight under which the artist paints, and a ground-floor gallery of his work.
