Erica's Profile

About

My name is Erica and I have been crafting and creating as long as I can remember. Writing and drawing and painting had their day; I still do these things but have focused more on tangible, dimensional art forms such as wood, metal, and jewelry. I am only one-half of the team at Yorkie Fields Designs, though! Chris is my wonderful fiancé, and he is credited with teaching me the scrollsaw, something I had never done before meeting him.

We live in rural Pennsylvania with 9 dogs; our Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Pixie and 8 Yorkshire Terriers; Cali Weasel, Kisses, Bentley, Beemer, Cooper, Aston, Bugatti and 'Yota. We really do have fields of Yorkies! They are sweet and (mostly) obedient, and the Yorkies often join us in our basement shop and roll around in sawdust and acrylic shavings. All except the Corgi, who will run off to herd deer and leaves and sticks and butterflies if the door is open!…

The sky is the limit when it comes to what Chris and I can create; he is an accomplished woodworker and taught me all I know about saws and sandpapers and finishes, not to forget turning, as he makes most of the pens. I treasure our down-time together in the shop, as creating things is what we do to relax-it's never work to us!
