Born in 1987 in the small town of Waterville, Ohio, Erin was immersed in art from a young age. Enrolling in her first art lessons at seven years
old, she spent her early years learning to paint and draw copying works of the old masters and spending summers drawing from life at the
Toledo Museum of Art.

In 2009 she earned a B.A. in Psychology and Entrepreneurship from Miami University. Upon graduation she decided to enroll in an independent
program called The Waichulis Studio and later moved to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where she lives and works today. Her work has been
featured in national publications as well as exhibitions throughout the U.S. She is represented by Dacia Gallery in New York.

I am inspired by complex dynamics and relationships within individuals and groups. Working on copper sheet, my compositions remain
anchored in representational figure painting juxtaposed by abstraction. To explore the connective nature of our experience, I make visual
comparisons between the figure and systems in nature.

I find that studying the ways in which nature is connected informs the ways I create atmosphere within and around my subjects. My intention is to
make inference into the dynamic and flow of the subjects in my work by etching complex designs into the copper substrate. The ensuing work is
an exploration of our relationships to one another and the mechanism through which we are connected.
