Ellen Langford

Ellen Langford has studied fine arts at the San Francisco Art Institute, Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy, the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C., and at the University of Mississippi, along with earning a B.A. in Religion from Colby College in Maine. Having left Mississippi as a teen in 1985, Langford returned to the sticky southern August heat in 1998. Dividing time between painting, working as a paramedic and being with family, Langford has found new inspiration for her paintings from the strong and often strange flavors of her Mississippi home.
