Artist, Erik R. Minzner,
is continually inspired by the subtleties of natures light,
air, and color. Using a variety of media (Oil, Watercolor, Pastel,
and Printmaking), his goal is to capture the dignity in the subject
before him. On any given day, regardless of the weather, he may
be found painting en plein air. His longing to be
an artist is deeply rooted in his New England upbringing, including
spending many summer days roaming Cliff Island, Maine as a boy.
Erik has a B.A. in History from Eastern Nazarene College. He
studied art at Heartwood College of Art and with many prominent
artists (George Carpenter, Dennis Poirier, and Eric Tobin). Minzner
often says that if he is ever considered a great artist, it will
be due to those who have come before him. Thus, He is influence
by the artwork of the Impressionists, the Cape Ann School, and
the rich history of art in Maine.
