Professionally,
Erin is a published illustrator, her work has been featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (2010), she was one of the exhibiting artists for Art on the Beltline in 2014: the largest public art exhibition in Atlanta’s history and her work has been shown in galleries in both Tennessee and Georgia. She has also had several paintings in movies!
Erin's paintings are playful, unique, and imaginative.

“Who are these people anyway?” (2015) is her most recent series, using antique photos and acrylic paints to create a humorous yet sophisticated animal portrait. She is currently working on a new watercolor series “Take 5, Fairy Tales” about what happens when characters take a break from the story.

Her 4th children's book, "Where's Wilson?" is releasing on January 14, 2016.

During her free time, she plays keys and sings in the band, Imagination Head, with her husband, J.R.
