Painting Compelling Compositions | June 2nd
Hello, I’m Erin. I am an Austin based artist who loves to create large scale oil paintings. I grew up in the hill country outside of San Antonio where I enjoyed a lot of time outdoors. I received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas. Outside of painting, I love cooking, working in my organic vegetable garden, and relaxing with my two huge gray cats.
My paintings are based on photos I’ve taken while traveling both close by and far away. Painting large scale helps me feel that I can step into the scene like a life sized postcard. Exploring empty and sometimes dilapidated spaces gives me a sense of adventure and challenges me creatively to find beauty and a compelling composition in seemingly random spaces.
