Eric Dowdle

Renowned folk artist Eric Dowdle has a background of hard work and dedication to God, family and country. He was born and raised in the heart of the western United States to parents of 12 children, 2 girls and 10 boys.

Many of the stories of Eric's youth are reflected in his artwork -- a chicken stuffed in a mailbox, a young boy surprising his mom with flowers from the neighbor's yard, children bravely walking a fence line or Boy Scouts playing pranks on each other.
