Award winning artist Ted Robertson (1942-1999) studied art at Colorado State University and The Bergman Art School in Denver, Colorado. Robertson spent three years in the U.S. Army as an illustrator for the 101st Airborne Division.



Known for his beautifully sensitive portraits, Robertson shared his incredible gift by conducting painting workshops throughout the country, but had a special love for the Southwest.

Robertson was a juried member of the Pastel Society of America (PSA) in New York City, The American Portrait Society in Los Angeles, and the Pastel Society of the Southwest. After gaining international acclaim for his work, Robertson was listed in the ‘Who’s Who in the West, ‘Who’s Who in the World’, and additional biographical publications.

Ted Robertson passed away in 1999, leaving a legacy of stunning portraiture in both private and public collections.

The Cecil Byrne Gallery in Charleston is proud to represent the work of Ted Robertson, as his pastel paintings are destined to become treasures that are passed down from generation to generation.
