Hi Friends!

 

I'm Erin. Art is my specialty, and people are my passion. I leaned into the vibrant life of being a creator in 2015 and I never looked back. I aim to create art for people who seek to find beautiful things in humble places.

Never do I want my work to feel static but full of energy and meaning.  The pieces I create bring life into whatever space they inhabit. I love painting large scale and I'm always looking to take on a new mural project! In the short time, I have been an artist I have had the privilege of doing over a dozen murals! That is huge for me. My goal in 2022 is to add to that number!

I studied Intercultural Studies and 2 Dimensional Studio Art at Southwest Baptist University; this is where I found my love for visual arts. I am fairly new to the life and career of full-time freelance art. I spend a lot of my time seeking out opportunities to bring more color into my little corner of the world, Northwest Arkansas, but I take every opportunity I can get to pack up my paintbrushes and spread the love of art.

 

I do a lot of freelance photography and design work, and my love for digital art is just as strong as it is for traditional media. I have just as much experience behind a camera as I do behind a paintbrush. 

A few fun facts about me: my life-blood consists of Dr. Pepper and true crime podcasts. I have a cringy love for the punk bands of my youth like Pierce the Veil and Sleeping With Sirens. I was born and raised in Southeast Arkansas, but I only retained 5% southern accent, an extensive knowledge of the game and fish commission, and a deep appreciation for the great outdoors.

Erin was an absolute joy. She listened to my idea and then ran with it. She totally nailed the project and I could not be more pleased. Highly recommended for any painting projects!
