Theodore Ladd Biography

Theodore LaddTheodore Ladd

A native of Osterville, Ladd, always had artistic inclinations – he has been drawing since he was 8 years old.  “I’ve always like to create things, ” he says.  “I like painting more because it builds on itself.”

Ladd’s painstaking attention to detail causes him to spend 30 to 50 hours on a given piece, but he says the time spent is important to realistically capture the landscapes he depicts.  “A lot painters let the paint do the flowing”, he says.  “I’m very structured, like, ‘I need this line to be perfect!’ I try to use my mind to be what creates it instead of the paintbrush.”

Going forward, Ladd says he would like to take painting lessons and eventually have his own studio.  “Thy say ‘Find something you like to do and you’ll never have to work,'” he says, “and I really like painting.”
