- Eric and Jessica Crabtree
Eric and Jessica Crabtree are a married couple residing in Naples, Florida with their son, Landon.
As Full-Time, self-taught artists, Eric and Jessica have had their work collected nationally
and internationally, as well as appearing on NBC. Their work is described as Transitional Abstract Art with acrylic on canvas as the main medium used.
After dedicating much time and study to the appreciation of fine art around the world, Eric and Jessica started honing in on their own talents and spent much of every day in their studio painting and sculpting. Although drawing most of their inspiration from Abstract Expressionist artists such as Turner and Twombly, Eric and Jessica also name Surrealism, Impressionism, and Mystical Expressionism as other major influences.
As a husband and wife team, Eric and Jessica have stated that their close relationship allows them to collaborate on pieces, drawing on past and present trials and celebrations to mold their art. This therapeutic outlet has resulted in some of their best collaborative pieces to date.
Eric and Jessica have named their ultimate goal as the continued expansion and cultivation of their natural artistic aptitudes and will continue to explore every avenue to do so.
An innate desire to express a feeling or recall a memory through shape and color is what motivates us to paint. Painting gives us the ability to almost think out loud without worry of what is expected or planned.
As a husband and wife team, our close relationship allows us to collaborate on each piece, drawing on past and present trials and celebrations to mold our art. This therapeutic outlet has resulted in some of our
best collaborative pieces to date.
All of our work comes from a quiet, yet restless place inside. Although our signature pieces are very tranquil in nature, it’s quite the opposite as we’re creating them.
With paint carelessly poured on the table, colors undetermined and brushes flung about.
We use any and everything to create; over-sized brushes, rags, paper, palette knives, or anything found lying around our studio. Our work is described as transitional abstract art with acrylic on canvas as the main medium used.
