Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Eleanor Royall Parker lives in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina where she grew up on the waters of the low country. She and her husband Russ raised their family on Shem Creek.
Eleanor has painted for many years, but in the last three years has taken a more serious interest in perfecting her craft. She is most interested in the sky and its varied light effects on the waters and marshlands that she is so familiar with. Eleanor has been lucky enough to study under many notable artists with amazing skills in the use of light, and this study has enhanced her ability to capture that light in her oil paintings.
