My name is Eric Henderson and I'm a Florida native, born and raised in Miami. I think I have always had a need to create. As a toddler I made a mural with an entire Vaseline container on the living room wall. My Grandfather and Great Grandfather were both talented artists. My brother, Ben, is a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and animator. Art must be in my blood.
My Grandfather, Walter Eric Haack, was a great artist and my biggest influence. I remember as a kid watching him work in his studio. Depending on the day he was either making fish, painting a seascape, or carving a sculpture. He could fabricate or fix just about anything. I strive to be like him.
I graduated from Plantation High School in 1993. In high school I excelled in my art classes and decided to go to art college.
I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with Highest Honors from the University of Florida in 1998. After graduating I worked as a Program Coordinator at The Education Fund in Miami from 1999 to 2001. I ran a warehouse that collected free supplies for teachers. Also, I was in charge of the annual art exhibition and art auction.
Next, I became an Art Teacher at Kinloch Park Elementary School in Miami from 2001 to 2003. Every Monday I was an Art Museum Educator at Jackie Hinchey-Sipes Gallery in Miami.
I've been the Art Teacher at Lakewood Park Elementary School in Fort Pierce since 2003.
My beautiful wife, Ashle, and I have been married since 2001. We have a wonderful son named Jack.
Making art helps me express myself and sort things out in my mind. Art is a vital need for me and if I'm away from it for too long, I lose myself.
