Erica Schmid's Profile
I grew up on a farm in eastern Washington, so it should be no surprise to learn that I was involved in 4-H. However unlike most kids in 4-H, I wasn't interested in showing animals but in the domestic side of things like baking, sewing and arts and crafts. My mom had a lot of influence in that, especially the sewing aspect of things. I hated sewing as a kid and only did it because it seemed to appease my mother. She sewed a lot of things for us growing up and was always very crafty and creative and still is to this day! I attribute my creativity and love of art to her.
In high school I got really interested in photography and by my senior year I got involved in the annual staff which only peaked my interest even more. I considered going to college for photography but it didn't really seem practical. Working as a photographer for the college newspaper would have to do, but only lasted my freshmen year…
