Hello, I’m Erica, a fine artist.

I’m based near the Rockies in Alberta, Canada, where I find inspiration in the rugged landscapes and the creatures that call them home. Our wild spaces are beautiful and diverse, and I hope that my art brings the mountains to you, wherever you are.

I am a classically trained artist who graduated from the Fine Art program at the Ontario College of Art and Design. I’ve also obtained a diploma in interior design, which allows me to create paintings while considering them in the context of potential spaces.

My style is bold, abstract, and full of life. I’m especially inspired by animals, and I strive to capture their spirit and essence in my paintings. My unique approach to painting bears has earned me recognition from admirers and fellow artists alike.

My paintings have been featured in museums and galleries across Western Canada and the United States, including the prestigious Hockaday Museum’s exhibition “A Timeless Legacy: Peace Park 2018”. I’ve also participated in public installations and been published in books and magazines such as Home and Garden.

I believe in using my art to make a positive impact on the world. I contribute to charities such as UNICEF Water for Life and the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation.

Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast looking to bring the beauty of the Rockies into your home, a wildlife lover searching for a piece that captures the spirit of your favorite animal, or an art collector seeking a unique and inspiring addition to your collection, I invite you to explore my work and bring one back home with you.

My paintings are a dual celebration of both the beauty and unpredictability of the natural world and the paint itself.
