Eddie Filer is a terrific Houston portrait painter recently awarded a Certificate of Excellence by the Portrait Society of America, which is a very prestigious and important prize, however it is only one of his many other accomplishments, including a recent solo show at the Houston Museum of African American Culture, which I had the pleasure to attend. Eddie also had an article featuring his art work in The American Art collector magazine!! Eddie is a generous teacher and very kind person. I am happy he took the time to visit me in my Sawyer Yards studio to talk about his art, projects and process. Eddie will be participated in Sawyer Yards Second Saturday Face Off event featuring members of the Houston Chapter of the Portrait Society. Check out his website at eddiefilerart.com for info on commissions and see more his work. Also follow Eddie on instagram at eddiefiler.
