About The Artist


Eric Silva at work 

Eric Silva's work reflects his individual artistic viewpoint that combines both natural and industrial materials in a small, thoughtfully constructed space, and that highlights the often-overlooked details found in daily life.  

He believes in the simplicity and integrity of the materials themselves, and for those who own his work, Eric affirms that a unique bond is forged between artist and owner.
