EPISODE 20: Eric Hanson - The Dallas / Fort Worth landmark painter
I am interviewing Eric Hanson. You may have seen Eric's work all over Dallas / Fort Worth in stores like West Elm and Pottery Barn or in museum gift shops like The Kimbell.

He has gotten so much exposure the past few years from so many businesses hiring him or from showcasing his work in their businesses. It's well deserved! It was a privilege chatting with him about what motivates and inspires him.
