Erica Vitalia is best known for her Encaustic Paintings and Glassware. Her work is richly coloured and deeply textured, created using many coloured waxes, resulting in completely original works of art. Her works are expressive, joyful, and always hand-painted with care and attention to detail.

Erica is a mixed media artist, with formal training in Encaustic Painting: the ancient art of painting with molten wax. Erica uses a mixture of beeswax and paraffin wax, adding oil paint to the molten wax to create rich colours. The encaustic paint is then layered, creating texture and depth, giving her work an ethereal and luminous quality. Her work often combines elements such as metals, fabric, wire screen, paper, oil paints, acrylics and encaustics. She paints on many mediums including canvas, wood panels, vinyl, and glass.

Erica grew up in Ottawa, studied in Toronto, and resides in Burlington. She studied Art History at the University of Ottawa, Graphic Design at Algonquin College, and Encaustic Painting at the Ontario College of Art & Design in Toronto. Erica’s work has been primarily displayed in private collections throughout Ontario.
