Ted Hartley Studio

9 West Dune Lane

East Hampton NY

—Artist Ted Hartley paints tales and action in color. As an actor, studio executive, producer, former U.S. Olympian, and Navy jet fighter pilot, Hartley’s storied life set against a backdrop of America at peace and war shape his paintings today.

Ted Hartley on painting: “It is about something. It is about something that moves you and looking for a way to integrate the search for authenticity and what is real, and the desire to express the stories, the deep convictions that run in your mind into colors and lines. It’s a wonderful trip.”


About Ted Hartley

Theodore Ringwalt Hartley is a former US Navy fighter pilot, olympian, investment banker, actor, film producer, and current CEO of RKO Pictures. Hartley’s work continues in the rich artistic tradition that lays claim to such painters as William Merritt Chase, Fairfield Porter, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Willem de Kooning, and many more. Using ink, charcoal, pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and gouache, Hartley unleashes marks and touches of glowing color into receptacles of his own making. Ted Hartley was born in Omaha, Nebraska. At fourteen, he entered a writing contest sponsored by Warner Brothers with a short essay titled “Why I Want to Fly.”  He won flying lessons and was airborne almost immediately. Like the rest of his life, once Hartley set his sights on a goal, he would not rest until he achieved or mastered it. Following suit, he began to paint. Hartley lives and works in New York City and his studio in East Hampton, NY.
