This past year he painted 100 Miami scenes in 100 days. Snap shots of Miami but better and lucky for us some of his time was spent at Vizcaya. Several of his painting are available in the Vizcaya Cafe and Shop.

I met Erik this past week when he delivered his paintings to the shop and had a delightful visit. It is refreshing to meet a person with such a passion for life. He embraces moments, places and people with joy and enthusiasm and it reflects in his stories and his art.
