Eric Christensen Biography
Eric began painting professionally in 1992. Since that time he has enjoyed amazing success and a growing reputation as a celebrated Wine Country Artist. Self-taught, he invented a watercolor technique that allows him to create images of vibrant color that go beyond the look and depth of a high quality photograph. He is the only known artist capable of hyperrealism through the use of standard watercolor.
Christensen continues to paint stunning images that remind us of the Wine Country lifestyle and delight those who collect his art. Christensen’s “wine art” begins where most contemporary wine artists leave off. Eric loves to capture the romance of the wine country, which as he points out, “is so much more than just the wine.”
Collectors of Christensen’s art typically own several of his creations and enjoy the varied themes they portray; lifelike landscapes and intimate still life paintings that incorporate a variety of elements including food, flowers or fruit with appropriate background settings.
