About Me
Eric Dergara was born in 1966 on Vandenberg AFB in California. He was practically raised in an art studio, and started to show a talent for the fine arts at a young age. He knew that becoming a professional artist was in his future when he was published by a national interior decorating firm in Atlanta, Georgia, when he was eighteen.  Since then, he has worked in several media while concentrating on and perfecting his skills in acrylic paint on canvas. 

In the 1980s and '90s, Eric studied at the Atlanta College of Art and the Portfolio Center in Atlanta in order to broaden his portfolio. In addition to painting, he enjoyed a career as an award-winning graphic designer, applying his creativity to print advertising. Now he is a full-time artist and parent, and gets to enjoy throwing paint on canvas while recreating for his son the type of environment that played such a big part in his own artistic upbringing.

Eric Dergara paints landscape scenes from memory and has recently started painting wildlife which seems to be working out for him.
