Ted Christensen was born in 1911. He painted impressionist landscapes and seascapes in a variety of media. His images came from his extensive travels to New Mexico, California, Hawaii, and Europe.
After World War II, where he served as a machine gunner, he received an injury-related discharge, which forced him to search out other occupational avenues. He took up painting at this time. His formal training included time spent at the Otis Art Institute and the Museum School in Portland, Oregon.
He has exhibited widely throughout the Southwest and Northwest. http://www.askart.com/artist/Ted_Christensen/100422/Ted_Christensen.aspx
