Eric retired from business almost twenty years ago, having spent many years in the field of recruitment and career counselling. He turned to the solace of painting after major personal loss, and the need to occupy his life creatively.
He attended several painting tutorials under professional artists, especially at Flatford Mill in Suffolk, and after following the Constable style he turned to painting in oils.
Recently he has developed his own method of producing large flower paintings,and has introduced water drops into his paintings to create a greater realism to his work. He has given several demonstrations, successfully raised thousands of pounds in grants for arts days for various organisations, and has won several awards locally In competitions for his paintings.
