Original Watercolor by J. Eric Anderson
Donated to the Freeport Public Library by the ABC (All 'Bout Children) Writers in memory of the artist.
Eric Anderson's family moved from Canada to Chicago when he was six years old, and he spent most of his long, productive life in Illinois. During WWII, he served in the Army, and soon after the conflict ended, he and Leone (Lee) Castell Anderson were married. Eric studied architecture and art at the U. of Illinois, and they raised three talented sons in their Elmhurst home, which Eric designed. In 1975, Eric and Lee moved to rural Stockton, Illinois, where they lived in the renovated Chelsea School House Studio and became respected and active members of the community.
