Going from painting to painting- it becomes a sort of maddening dance. I am very process oriented and I find my paintings as I paint them. I am incredibly inspired by nature as well as the conflict between nature and man-made things. Daily, I take in images around me and they become mixed with the emotional and spiritual aspects of my life. What comes out is a new creation born of observation, passion and empathy. Using encaustic, or sometimes mixed media, I wrestle with them until they sit quiet and are finished amongst the wreckage of my studio.

I relish the intimate relationship that can be had between a viewer and a work of art. There is a feeling of ownership as one stands before a piece of art and something connects deep within them. It is in this connection that something much bigger steps into place and turns one’s heart so meaningfully to wood and paint with such depth. It both humbles me and entices me on.

Erica received her BFA concentrated in painting and drawing from Tyler School of Art. She has been pursuing a career as a professional artist since 2003. She has been involved in many solo and group exhibitions. Images of her work has been used in advertising and has been written about in several publications. She regularly donates pieces to charity auctions and has been an artist in residency. Erica often takes on commission work including mural projects. She lives and has her studio in West Chester, PA.
