"I am truly honored to be nominated for Best Travel or Adventure
Show by the Critics' Choice Awards. This recognition is a testament to the
incredible places and people I have had the privilege of meeting along this
journey. I decided years ago that I wouldn’t paint a place unless I’d actually
been there. Because I know if I can feel what makes it special, then you’ll be
able to feel it too. I hope 'The Piece Maker' continues to inspire viewers to
explore the world, appreciate different places and people, and to embrace their
own creative passions,” said Eric Dowdle, host of "The Piece Maker."
