Erica was born in 1975 and
grew up in the countryside of a small city in British Columbia surrounded
by trees and bird song, quiet starry nights filled with northern lights
and peaceful snowfall.
Erica had a great deal of alone time inspired
by her environment and this has helped to mold the art she makes today.
Today, Erica lives in the Beautiful
Okanagan Valley in BC with her husband and two children.
Over the years Erica has been most
inspired by the Art Nouveau movement of the turn of the century genre
artists and one can catch glimpses of the curved decorative lines inspired
by natural forms and structures. According to the
philosophy of the style, art should be a way of life. Art Nouveau acted as
a transition between the eclectic historic revival styles of the
19th-century and the Modernist style which rejected the more traditional
forms of art. Besides Art Nouveau, Erica is also
inspired by the Group of Seven, El Greco and Japanese minimalism.
Recently, Erica has emerged into the gallery scene with two distinct
styles one she has coined, “Cubist Impressionism” and the second is called
"Nouveau 7", both of which she hopes will lend credit to the varied
teachers and styles she is so taken with.
She has been awarded finalist landscape placement in 2015 and 2016 for
both styles, with follow up articles in Southwest art magazine.
“I strive to paint each
picture with a life of its own. I want my art to be
memorable and beautiful. Art that is accessible,
recognizable and has a modern twist.”

"Evening Shades" was one of the finalists out of 6500 entries! She
was chosen to be published in the Jan. 2015 issue of Southwest Art
Magazine and was very pleased to find her painting printed twice in the
magazine, as artist profile and also is an 'exciting find' in the
editor's blog. Here is a direct link:
