Born on June 18, 1974, in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa; Hallie A. Ndorley is a self-taught artist who began drawing at age 7.
Hallie paints exclusively in oil, acrylic and a variety of mediums, with over twenty-five years developing his skills. A number of figures can be seen in Hallie’s paintings, including his abstracts. He awaits the precise moment than when visions and images appear to him, he’s inspired to paint what he feels and sees with a heartfelt rhythm of mystic flowing colors. This rare form gets him in a realm of his own, as he carefully follows his mind’s eyes into flowing spiritual senses of creativity.
Hallie has worked and trained with many other artists over the years. In 1993, he participated in the Liberia art organization, new breed paintings. He taught the fundamentals of drawing at the primary Lebanese school in Monrovia while working as an illustrator and cartoonist at the Heritage Newspaper.

He has been commissioned for numerous pieces of his artwork by Tradevo Bank of Liberia, UNICEF and many other renowned businesses.

He has traveled extensively and has had many exhibitions around the world. He speaks English, French, and Dutch and lives with his family in Toronto Canada. In 2009, Hallie Ndorley moved his family from Europe to Canada; wife Naomi, sons, Hamica, Melvin, Meshach and daughter, Kerticia.
