Born in Greenfield, MA, Ethan Aaron Rice has been indulging his creative and artistic tendencies since childhood, fostered from life in both rural western Massachusetts and the suburban landscapes of New Jersey. What began as constant childhood doodles evolved into a deeper interest in the principles of art and the beginning of a lifelong passion. Ethan graduated from Northfield Mount Hermon highschool in 2001 where he began his studies in art. He then earned a Bachelor's degree in Studio Art with minors in both Art History and English at the University of Vermont. During his undergraduate years, Ethan also studied abroad in Cortona, Italy at the Lamar Dodd School of Art with the University of Georgia where he was introduced to intaglio printmaking. His interest in printmaking led him back to Italy to further his education at Il Bisonte Institute of Printmaking in Florence, Italy. He graduated at the top of his class with a professional printmaking degree in 2007. Ethan's art has been shown in many international and national shows. He continues to exhibit and enter competitions near and far to connect with more artists. Presently, Ethan lives in Santa Monica, California where he teaches printmaking classes at the Irvine Fine Arts Center.
