Erik Drageset is a Mar Vista artist whose passion lies in both his family and fine art oil painting.

Classically trained at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, his innate talent has been revered by the media, art critics and renowned illustrators alike.

Erik has been hailed as an artist who has the special ability to capture the true essence and soul of a subject, whether it be a landscape, cityscape or portrait painting. 

He considers his paintings "snapshots of his soul," and is happiest when armed with a glass of wine, classical music and a paintbrush (and maybe a kid or two climbing on his back).
