Eddie Harris is a Pacific Northwest Artist whose art literally saved him as a child. Born in to severe poverty, art was a way to distract his mind and hide his constant hunger as he and his siblings suffered from malnutrition. At 10 years old he weighed only 37 pounds. At 15 Eddie won an art scholarship to the Lubbock Municipal Garden and Art Center. Later he landed his first professional job at Hanna-Barbera and later he worked for Jay Orhberg Hollywood Cars. His life long love affair for art and anything that runs on fossil fuel has kept him going. These days he’s created art for some of the most famous names in the automotive industry.
