Statement

 

Eric Rewitzer was born the youngest of five children in Flint, Michigan in 1966.  His father was a landscaper, his mother a nurse.  He spent his boyhood summers sailing the waters of Lake Michigan, forming his sense of independence and profound appreciation for nature.  He also worked as the neighborhood paperboy, teaching him early lessons about work and responsibility, and the rewards inherent in them.  Eric enjoyed his studies in school, and found the challenge of learning how to draw particularly rewarding.
Eric studied painting and printmaking at Michigan State University and the Cleveland Institute of Art.  In 1988, he boarded the California Zephyr train in Chicago bound for San Francisco.  He had little more than a backpack and a head full of dreams of being a studio artist.  He was 22.
22 years later, those dreams have come true, but like most things worthwhile, not exactly as planned.  While Eric maintained his studio pursuits, he also spent a great effort in making the west his home, establishing himself as a young production artist for newspapers. Eric was surprised to discover his creativity married well with the technology being developed for publishing, and was an early adopter in the desktop publishing revolution.  It wasn't long before Eric was advising software companies on how to develop applications to help people work more efficiently, and in 1998 he found himself as the Senior Marketing Consultant for Design, Print, and Digital Imaging at Apple Computer.
In 2001, Eric founded his first company, IO Integration, which consulted with advertising agencies and publishers to create automated workflow solutions, then subsequently installed and maintained those systems throughout the United States.  The business grew quickly, going from 2 to 30 people in 6 years, and in 2007, after 20 years in the technology industry, Eric decided that the time was right to finally focus exclusively on his artistic pursuits.
Today, Eric spends his time in the light-filled studio he shares with his wife, Annie Galvin, also an artist.  Married in 2001, they started 3 Fish Studios in January 2007 in order to create a space where they cold make art, exhibit their work, and fuel the creative spark of other San Franciscans.  Eric finds constant inspiration in the scale and diversity of the California culture and landscape.  He simply can not stop looking at the city he calls home - San Francisco.  He finds it to be an amazing mix of natural beauty, urban grit, and human diversity - and the place where his dreams continue to come true.Eric Rewitzer was born the youngest of five children in Flint, Michigan in 1966.  His father was a landscaper, his mother a nurse.  He spent his boyhood summers sailing the waters of Lake Michigan, forming his sense of independence and profound appreciation for nature.  He also worked as the neighborhood paperboy, teaching him early lessons about work and responsibility, and the rewards inherent in them.  Eric enjoyed his studies in school, and found the challenge of learning how to draw particularly rewarding.
