In 1985, Eric Rhoads purchased a floundering radio trade magazine and founded Streamline Publishing, Inc., which launched a number of publications which include: PleinAir magazine and Fine Art Connoisseur magazine.
At age 40, Rhoads took his first art lesson, which has resulted in a lifelong learning experience in painting, focusing on landscapes and portraits. His work is represented at Castle Gallery and in California. He is listed in Who’s Who in American Art.
Rhoads and his wife, Laurie, are the parents of triplets; they live in Austin, TX.
