Fort Wayne Native Juggles Artistic And Entrepreneurial Passions

Fort Wayne native Eric Rhoads is an internationally recognized artist and career entrepreneur now living in Austin.

Since graduating from Homestead High School nearly forty-five years ago, his accomplishments have included all aspects of business turnarounds, radio broadcasting and programming, publishing and marketing which he balances with a love for painting, and teaching others to do the same.

When WBOI's Julia Meek learned that Rhoads was in town for a show at the Castle Gallery last month, she invited him into the studio to talk about his artistic passions and how insatiable curiosity continues to shape his world.

Connect with Eric and learn more about his endeavors at his official website.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
