Erin was never one to follow the traditional path. Born and raised in Stockton, she took her adventurous spirit around the world to eventually find herself back home to launch her heart as an artist. With a degree in journalism from Arizona State University, and a background in publicity and non-profit, Erin said goodbye to the “nine to five” and traveled the globe for six years teaching English and Bikram yoga. From Morocco to Thailand, Colombia to Malta, Erin learned more about the world and herself, learning several languages and gaining priceless life experience. Primarily a self-taught artist, her mother was her first teacher, being an artist herself. While living in Louisville, KY for two years, Erin began to take her craft more seriously and was mentored by a locally renowned artist.
