    I just met you yesterday sitting in your tent in Salem. I was so taken with your piece “Words Hurt” I had to stop and take a picture of it. I wish so badly I could have afforded it – I have never been so moved by a piece of art in my life. Your style is bold and unique and almost surreal…I will be following your work from now on. Looking forward to checking out your kids books too 🙂

      Thank you SO much, it really means a lot to me when my art reaches somebody’s heart. Thank you for appreciating it and following me, and keep your eye out for prints of that one… Many people liked that one 🙂

    I recently met Erin when a friend invited me to a paint party at her home. I immediately found Erin to not only be an extremely nice, funny, personable soul, but she is an amazing artist! Love the work she does, and she is a wonderfully, patient teacher! I never thought I would ever paint anything! I have learned many techniques already from just two classes I have had with her. As much fun as I have had at paint and wine places elsewhere, I did not learn brush techniques, how to mix colors properly, shading, etc. and did not get the quality, personal attention that Erin gives wholeheartedly. She has an awesome sense of humor that keeps us laughing as we paint. She really cares about her students and is always taking our photos as we paint! lol I highly recommend her if you are looking for personal attention from an accomplished artist. You can paint not only at her studio, but she does house parties! I so look forward to my next class with her in November!
