Meet the Artist, Eric Dowdle

Eric Dowdle

See the world through the eyes of Folk Artist, Eric Dowdle. From the delightful perspectives that he paints, he captivates people of all ages with the wit, charm and detail in which he portrays a scene. His quirky, funny and infectious personality is represented in his art and he is known worldwide for folk art paintings which translate into puzzles and prints for all ages. Eric started painting in his early twenties, parting ways with college after one year, to “go make something happen”. Making things happen is how Eric does things—painting, exploring, marketing, and working day and night to expand the business and his collection of over 250 paintings. Today, his work is distributed throughout the world. His research has taken him everywhere, from Kenya and China to the South Pacific and Europe. And yet, his favorite destination location is still home in Utah, with his wife and five children. His heart is in Utah. He has a vast collection of Utah paintings that were published into a book in 2006.
