"A life in Art is a fabulous journey."
                                                              - Eric Michaels 

   Eric Michaels has embraced the fabulous journey of being an artist both figuratively and literally. He has traveled the world painting across four continents and is equally fluent in watercolor, oil and pastel. He has not limited his subjects to the landscapes he visits, but has also mastered the genre of historic painting. Michaels is a signature member of the Oil Painters of America, the National Watercolor Society, and the Pastel Society of America. Michaels grew up in Illinois and received a B.F.A. in art. He shared with us his personal journey.
