Hello there! I am Erin, an artist living in northwest Dallas, Texas. I have to tell you I’ve not always been a painter and I certainly have much more to learn. That being said, I am loving this journey I am on—and so glad you are here with me!
Let me share my story with you...College went many different directions for me. It went something like this: art history, early elementary education, and finally finding my home in the school of fine arts. I loved being in classes surrounded by a community of others who shared the same drive and passion for art. Mostly, I enjoyed working with my hands to create beautiful things.
I am an artist by degree, but have considered myself an artist my entire life. I am fascinated with flowers and bold, beautiful colors. And I make art using ink, gouache and watercolor. I create both hand painted and digital designs for home textile and apparel fabrics, stationery and gift wrap. My art is also available for sale as both originals and as high quality art reproduction prints through my online shop.
I love coffee, good Tex-Mex and fresh baked donuts.
Most days you will find me at home with my kids creating together, in the kitchen making snacks and hopefully teaching them how to chase their dreams.
“My life path has brought me to this place. I am a believer in how all life experiences culminate into new, beautiful moments.”
All of my art is created in my home studio. Making art in the midst of where we live our life together often means I’ll be creating alongside schoolbooks, washable markers and piles upon piles of plastic dinosaurs. These are my favorite people & are quite frankly the best studio mates an artist (and mom) could ask for!
I am inspired by bright bold florals and luscious colorful details. My process is simple. I’ve probably been dreaming of an idea in my head for days. However, I don’t start with pencils and paper to plan the piece or the composition. I throw caution to the wind most days and try and take my best advice to “just start making art”.
