When you step into Eric Thorsen's Art Studio you will have a sense of being surrounded by animals of all kinds.

This gallery allows you to see both finished and work in progress. It's really interesting to see what he has done in so many different types of material.

Work is excellent , variety of paintings and art forms as well .Sculptures give the illusion of being porcelain , (similar in appearance to Iladjro)Store is jam packed with options. Working studio in back.A little difficult to maneuver if busy . Staff helpful.Something for everyone , although high-end.

Mr. Thorsen is a skilled artist. His work is gorgeous but expensive. It is worth a visit if you get their when his gallery is open. He does not post his business hours.
