Born in 1971 in the Zengeza neighbourhood of Chitungwiza, a large township close to Harare, Eric started carving in 1994. He was initially encouraged by the renowned first generation sculptor Edward Chiwawa who took him under his guidance and taught him the art of working stone.

He enjoys mentoring young artists in the Chitungwiza Art Centre where he is a respected resident artist. His works have been exhibited locally in different galleries around Harare and included in collections around the world.
