A LITTLE

about me

Through Making Art I Find

my calm amongst the chaos

Erin is an artist, illustrator, teacher, mother, hiker and lover of the colour green. Seriously, green on green is kinda her thing.

Back in the day she trained and worked in film production, however, having kids led her back to her true love, PAINTING and WRITING. All those crayons and crafts re-ignited the fire!

She started a Youtube channel where she shared her painting process to four thousand subscribers. She became a Skillshare teacher where her Whimsical Faces class was taken by over five hundred students and garnered excellent reviews.

Erin is a commercial illustrator and works with designers to create artwork for a variety of small businesses and brands. Recently she was published in Issue 52 of UPPERCASE magazine.

At the end of 2020, Erin was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and began a year of treatment. During this time she decided that she would paint 100 Bad Paintings as a way to lean into her creativity and not feel pressured by perfectionism.

Writing her BLOG is one of her favourite things to do. She knows it’s so mid-2000s but Blogs are the best! She writes about about her creative processes, productivity, running a creative business, family life, spirituality and her journey with Breast Cancer

Erin currently lives in Far North Queensland with her amazing husband, two marvellous daughters, a wolf dog and a rascally cat. 

alignment

Step back from the noise and tune into the relationships, experiences, places and things that you truly value. All we have is our own truth, our own inspiration, our own passions, plans, ideas and wild, beautiful dreams. Listen to them.

creativity

Hold the space for yourself to unfold. Lean in closely to what brings you joy. Allow yourself the freedom to be messy, unrefined, a beginner. Trust in the whispers that urge us to create, they have so much to reveal.

magic

There is possibility, wonder and connection all around us. When alignment, creativity, knowledge and trust come together, magic always happens. I always want my work to make people feel like anything is possible.
