About

Hot off the Purrito Press

The cat-based work began when Erin was at University of Central Florida earning her BFA in Graphic Design. She took a printmaking class and fell in love with the method for creating. Frustrated with demands from the professors and class critiques pushing and pushing her work to be more, she decided to retaliate with a series about her cat, Kari. Every piece was obnoxiously cute, and Erin imbued each plate she etched with an attitude that raged, "Screw you world, I'm making art about my cat- deal with it!" The printmaking club had an art sale that same semester, and she decided to enter some of her prints in it- un sure of what might happen. To Erin's surprise, she received a text from one of the people running the sale that simply said, "If its not cats, it's not selling!"

After Erin graduated, she still wanted an outlet to sell her cat prints and tried a few different things before she did something really scary. SHE WENT TO MEGACONVENTION in Orlando, Fl. MegaCon was an established staple of Florida Cons and Erin took a chance with encouragement from other artists and purchased a booth. Erin has been attending cons every year since then- and will keep branching out to more each year!

Erin's cat, Kari, continues to be an inspiration for the art work Erin creates. Kari often sits in a chair or under an easel, next to Erin while she works, snoring or squeaking as she sprawls on her back with her paws reaching out in cuteness. Erin hopes that even if you never own a piece of her work, that even if you only look at it and it makes you smile for one second- that it was worth it for her to make. The world could use a bit more smiles.
