Frank Eber

Frank Eber was raised in Europe and mentored by Italian master painter Renato Casaro in 1994-95. In the '80s and '90s Frank worked as a professional illustrator and as a portrait artist by commission. His love for travel has given him prime opportunities to paint: he lived for three years in the south of France, and has painted on location in Italy, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic. He has also painted in California and other parts of the United States.

Frank is a Signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and Watercolor West. He is also an Artist member by the prestigious California Art Club.

Frank is increasingly in demand as a judge and juror. He conducts workshops and demonstrations locally and at the national and international levels. He teaches classes, both in-studio and en plein air. He lives in California.
