Erin has taken art classes since she was five years old when she fell in love with color and paper. Something about the physical and contemplative process of making art has always stuck with her. The stories and people of Chicago, where she grew up, have inspired much of her work. She moved to Seattle four years ago and received her BA in Studio Art from Seattle Pacific University. She spent those years refining her painting skills and art history knowledge, as well as getting acquainted with the beautiful outdoors of the PNW and culture of Seattle.
While she loves drawing everything and getting her hands covered in any art material, what she really loves is painting and portraiture. Art has always been a part of her life and always will be. In that, she has discovered a joy of teaching art and sharing the creative process with people around her. Whether teaching teens in Chicago or kids here in the Seattle area, she loves how making art sparks the imagination and builds community. She is excited to bring her passion for art to Museo Art Academy!
