Eric Dowdle began painting in his early twenties and after just one year of college decided to part ways to “make something happen!” Making things happen is exactly what Eric has done and continues to do. Painting, exploring, and working day and night to expand his collection of distinctive folk art paintings is his passion. Being an artist is not just a job to Eric. It is a lifestyle in which he can connect with people of diverse cultures and backgrounds. Of all these travels to vast and beautiful places, his favorite is his home in Utah with his wife and five children.
