About the Artist

Eddie Filer, Jr. has been an active artist for over thirty years. While classical portraiture is his main focus; he pursues other forms of painting and creates in other media, such as photography and sculpture. He prefers oil paint to other mediums because of its slow drying time (which allows for adjustments to be made on wet-on-wet painting).  Eddie has taught art in public schools, gives painting workshops. He believes in teaching detailed drawing fundamentals.

A native of Galveston, Texas, Eddie currently resides in Texas City with his wife of 29 years and their two children.
