Eric Legge
Once you get to know Eric Legge, it is not so surprising that he studied philosophy and anthropology, but not art. Some artists paint from their minds, or their hearts. Eric Legge seems to paint from his soul. Eric spends his days and nights creating beautiful nuanced work out of paint and found objects, revealing a serene appreciation for the details of his world. Eric says he gained some insights into life from working in a developmental center for the mentally handicapped: “I guess that experience gave me an awareness of how fortunate I am. Being able to think, see and comprehend the world around you, that is a wonderful gift. I guess I decided that painting and creating art is the best way to use that gift.”
