Ellen Tiller Bass was first encouraged to paint in elementary school by her aunt, Mary Frierson. Even though she has had no formal art education, she has taken group and private lessons from William McCullough, Chevis Clark, Carol McDaniel Clark, Jackie Wukela, Andy Braitman, Bruce Chandler, James Pratt, Joyce Hall, Kelly Atkinson, and West Frasier.
The Sea Island Translation Team in cooperation with Wycliffe Bible Translators used one of her sketches on the cover of the Gospel of John in Gullah, De Good Nyews Bout Jedus Christ Wa John Write.
Ellen Tiller Bass has published a devotional book titled In A Garden. She uses her paintings to illustrate the different chapters which discuss the gardens of the Bible and how to apply Scripture to our lives.
Following the inspiration of the Impressionists, Ellen loves to use a soft brush stroke. Through her travels she has been fortunate to see many countries and she is challenged to capture in paint many lovely scenes. Therefore, she paints a variety of subjects, usually in her favorite meduim: oil. 
Ellen is an exhibiting member of the Charleston Artist Guild and her paintings can be seen in the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery on East Bay Street. She is also a member of the Greater Lake City Artists Guild. Her paintings have been on display in the Florence Museum, the Rice Museum in Georgetown, the Artfields Office in Lake City, and the Williamsburgh Historical Museum in Kingstree. Her paintings are owned by private collectors across the United States and Europe.
