Introduction: I love what I do and my standards are high and I'm always striving to present things with a new perspective. It's important to keep the work as original as possible whether it is an Illustration, portrait, or logo - this is for both digital or tradition. With portrait work I get the exact likeness of the subject. When I draw or paint someone I like to meet the person I'm drawing so that I can get their personality to come through the artwork. When creating logos I listen carefully to what the client wants and expects. This is the one piece of art that is their first impression when meeting with a client. A logo captures the mood and feel of a company. My approach is to think out to the box. This creates a unique, personal and professional look for the client. My skills in Photoshop are expert and having an illustration background gives me an advantage over the competitors. Especially, since I have a strong grasp of understanding the human anatomy as taught from the Academy of Art. Being a portrait artist also gives me another upper hand in photo retouching. No matter the job I put my all into my work as if it was my own. This ensures the client will walk away a happy customer. I love to create and it makes me feel good when what I can do can put a smile on someones face.

Eric is very quick to respond and does very good work. He enhanced 3 photos for us that were over 30 years old and made them worth framing. He took a long time to remove lines covering one photo and did a great job in making the photos come alive through color and some cropping. He has a great background and a good eye. His price was very reasonable and he didn't charge us extra for the additional work he did to remove the time-consuming lines.

Talented - Professional - Reliable - Customer Oriented Working with Eric has been a 5-Star experience. I wanted a different background for an 11x14 decade old photograph that was black and white with a selective splash of color. Eric was able to take the original color photograph, give me a variety of compatible backgrounds to choose from, and turn it back into a black and white enlargement with the splash of color. Beautiful. Eric is a skilled professional who achieves the goal of reading the customer's mind and delivering that product. Besides the technical workmanship, Eric kept in contact, was knowledgeable and timely in response.

Eric restored 2 very old photograph portraits of me that were taken 38 years ago. I am giving them to my fiancé as a wedding gift. The end results was fabulous and they will make an amazing gift. These restored photographs really demonstrates how knowledgeable and talented he is. The pictures really came to life. He was enjoyable to work with and a good listener. I highly recommend him. You will be pleased.

Eric created a book cover and is in the final stages for the book back. His work is beautiful. And although I moved through stages of not knowing what I was doing, he patiently proceeded with my book's themes. The Design and input match what I hope the reader takes from the book. Bring him a minimal sketch and watch the beauty unfold.

I contacted Eric because I needed to remove someone from a family picture. Eric was was very communicative, and responded way faster than I expected. He kept me updated on the progress of his work along the way and seriously...the end result is awesome. Thanks again, Eric!
