Erica shares, "In a complicated world, I wanted to provide a piece that is simple, colorful and peaceful. My goal is for the viewer to enjoy the moment and find a respite from their daily challenges".
An Oregon native, Erika resided in Seattle the last 25 years raising a family and creating art. In those years, Erika’s work was featured and sold in over a dozen shows, and has been exhibited throughout Seattle and the Puget Sound. Her ability to capture nature, emotions and imagination has been well received for being accessible, fun and enlightening. Erika fuses her knowledge of painting, fabric and silk screening to expertly create wall hangings and paintings. Her latest work blends her rigorous classic art training with her desire to create lightness and whimsy for those who experience them. Erika is currently working on a new series of work and hopes you find enjoyment in one of her newest pieces.
