Most families typically have a tagline for each child—"The Musical One," 'The Sporty One," "The Brainy One"—but in the Ellison's case all four are "The Artsy One." This is a close-knit family that builds 12-foot-tall teepees out of found materials on family holidays, after all. ("We are not good at relaxing on vacation," Lydia, the oldest, jokes.) Here, we find out what makes the four California-native siblings so inclined to create, and what drew them to their respective fields of photography, woodworking, metalworking, and cooking.

How's that for creative destiny?
