    Edwin Ellis was born in Nottingham, but moved to London in 1867, to further his career as a marine and landscape artist. He exhibited widely, not only at the various galleries and institutions in London, including the Society of British Artists (of which he became a member in 1875), the Royal Academy and Agnew’s, but also further afield in Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham. He travelled extensively throughout Britain as far afield as Cornwall, Northumberland, Yorkshire, North Wales and the Channel Islands.
