About The Artist
In my art, I attempt to convey the essence of a thing or a place. To that end, I am continually trying to move towards abstraction, leaving room for interpretation. In walking the fine line between what is known and what is not, I am hoping to lead the viewer to take a closer look.
Erika grew up in a small town in Southern California, where she spent a lot of time roaming the hills on either a horse or a motorcycle. She attended the University of Redlands, where she studied printmaking under John Nava. After a move to San Francisco, she graduated from SFSU with a degree in Industrial Design. Although she had a career in the Insurance Industry, she never stopped creating and has explored printmaking, encaustic, mixed media and painting.
