Exhibiting with Annie Galvin in Room 231
Eric was born and raised on the industrial shores of Lake Michigan. He studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art, and moved to the west coast in 1987. As a printmaker, his work is inspired by the natural world, and the way we choose to live with it. The city of San Francisco has inspired him for years - the light, the way the buildings hug the hills, the splash of sky and water and bridge against these structures. He loves the Sierras, the Pacific, and small coastal towns, too.
In 2006, Eric and Annie co-founded 3 Fish Studios, creating a dedicated space where they can make and show their artwork, as well as teach classes, host events, and showcase the talents of other local artists. Located just off Ocean Beach in the Outer Sunset District of San Francisco, 3 Fish Studios has been warmly welcomed into the the community, cultivating a collaborative process of creating and sharing art, surrounded by the vibrancy of people sharing ideas. It has resulted in their artwork being included in many private and public collections including the Sonoma Museum of History, the California Historical Society, and the Marin Community Foundation. Their work is also available through outlets like the SFMOMA store, the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and fine retailers across California.
