Artistically, Erin is best known, and has received many awards, for her vibrantly colored contemporary paintings exploring realism, impressionism and expressionism. Recent works incorporate a more “green” approach by incorporating non-traditional canvases such as recycled luggage, maps or books. These works also employ both abstract and expressive representational imagery, and incorporates cultural symbols of the ancient world along with sacred geometry. Her newest body of work is centered around the spirit of the horse with their beauty, power and strength expressed through their elegant movements and graceful lines.

Erin exhibits her work on-line, in local New England establishments and galleries and exhibits extensively in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Her work is in public and private collections throughout the US and England.

Free time finds Erin meditating, drawing and sketching, reading, playing with her kids and dogs, volunteering at her kid’s school or in any other creative process, project, craft or outlet. She lives in Hampden, MA with her two children, two former pound puppies and a former shelter cat.
