Ted is a graduate of Augustana College, Rock Island, IL, and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He has had a life long interest in Art, particularly watercolor. Ted returned to his birthplace in Maine for the first 25 summers of his life, and there gained great admiration for the beauty of a northern landscape environment, something partly responsible for his decision to practice medicine in Minnesota. He has been a featured artist at Lizzard's Gallery in Duluth, and his work may be seen at Lizzard's, Just for the Season, and Waters of Superior Galleries. He has participated in workshops with Karlyn Holman, Frank Webb, Tony Couch, William Vrscak, Eric
Weigardt, Cheng-Khee Chee, and Paul George.
