Lillie Pell's landscape paintings of Texas usually include include farm and ranch animals. She also paints a variety of still life compositions as well.
Pell's early years were spent in League City, Texas, near Houston. Her family encouraged her interest in art and she was mentored by a third grade teacher who took a special interest in her abilities.
Pell became a secondary school teacher and worked in other fields until her interest in art finally took precedence. She enrolled in the University of Houston to acquire the basic skills needed to pursue her lifelong interest in painting.
After completing her graduate degree at the University of Houston she relocated to the Wimberley Valley in the Texas Hill Country where she paints and shares her expertise in oil painting with a growing group of students in her studio. She continues to study and learn from contemporary and master painters through books and workshops and is represented by several galleries in Texas.
