Ted Collier is a visual artist, collector, gallerist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist living and working in St. Louis, Missouri and Los Angeles, California. His abstract paintings range from bold to subtle—from monochromatic to vibrantly colorful. Ted’s portfolio of work is incredibly diverse and represents various styles, but perhaps his most iconic works are his circles. As in nature, every sphere is unique and deliberate.
Ted finds inspiration all around him, but as an avid fly fisherman, he is particularly drawn to Missouri streams and rivers. You can recognize the influence of nature in the strokes, textures, and colors of his work. Ted also thrives in creating commission work for clients in their homes or businesses, often designing a piece based on the space in which it is to be hung. It is not uncommon for Ted to create multiple works for one buyer, developing a set of pieces that communicate with each other and the space they occupy.
