Eric W. Davis


     Eric was born in Laramie, Wyoming in 1961.  He lived most of his youth in Lawrence, Kansas.  He has a Baccalaureate degree in Fine Arts from the University of Kansas.  In 1992 he moved to Seville, Spain, where he finished  a “tesina” (master's dissertation) in fine Art from the University of Sevilla. He has sold paintings for a living, and also taught painting and Art History classes to American exchange students in various universities in Seville.  Eric runs a studio on his sunny attic terrace where he has taught painting classes and which he occasionally rents out to artists.  He holds weekly life drawing sessions with models.  These sessions are open to artists and students who want to draw.

    Eric´s paintings are mostly landscapes of locations in Southern Spain and Portugal.  Occasionally  he works in other parts of Spain, Italy and Africa.  Also, from time to time he does portraits or figure paintings.  He sells his work directly from his studio or in exhibitions.
