Eric Westbrook

Severn, Maryland/Richmond, Virginia

Eric Westbrook creates realistic portraits and landscapes using both oil paints and charcoal with chalk.

Eric Westbrook’s work has been described as an “art of attention”—a reference to the artist’s close observation of a subject, both for its surface details and for the structure and rhythm of its underlying forms. At the same time, the work itself repays attention: the more the viewer sits with it, the more what drew the artist to it in the first place is revealed.

Inspired by Rembrandt, J.W. Waterhouse, Rockwell Kent, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Louis Armstrong, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Eric believes art to be a means of showing yourself to the world by sharing what and how you see.
