Born and raised in Southwest New Mexico, Eric has been good at drawing since early childhood, influenced by his mother, who has been painting since he was very young. He received a "Best of Show" award in his 2nd grade school art show, and since then he has received numerous ribbons for both his drawings and his photography, which he discovered a passion for while achieving his BS in Electrical Engineering from New Mexico Tech.   He joined GCAG in '07 and started to paint in acrylic, and has taken workshops from Robert Goldman and David Schwindt.  Eric can be reached at
