One of the things that fascinates me about artists is how they got to where they are as creative professionals. What were the formative influences that shaped them as artists? What were the major challenges they faced, and what drove them to overcome them? Annapolis painter John Ebersberger is no exception. After graduating from a prestigious art school, John discovered that his school had not taught him how to draw or paint. It was under to tutelage of Cedric Egeli that John applied himself to become the brilliant painter that he is today.
