Eric was born in Vancouver Washington in 1980 where he spent most of his childhood, with the exception of several moves to Oregon and California. In 1990 he moved to Denmark, then again in 1991 to the Czech Republic where he stayed 7 years. Eric was home-schooled until his freshman year of college. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting at Greenville College in Greenville, Illinois. After college he moved briefly to Colorado Springs, Colorado but due to a lack of art galleries, he quickly made the move to Denver. Eric stayed in Denver for nearly two years where he had various art shows in local galleries, until he was picked up by Robin Rule to join her stable of artists at Rule Gallery. Eric moved to Portland, Oregon in 2004 where he currently resides with his wife, Danielle. Eric is represented by Gallery IMA in Seattle, Washington.
