Erin holds regular solo exhibitions and has an emphasis on personal practice. Her signature charcoal paintings are complimented by exploration through other mediums including her love of watercolour, soft pastel, and oil painting. See Erin's Art website.
Erin is known for her superb figurative (realism) in paint and earlier soft pastels in vibrant colour, as well as the low tonal contrast, quiet conversations in pure willow charcoal. The Psychic community know her work as a strong psychic empath, utilsing the down to earth vehicle of exhibition to offer myriad viewpoints and no bias to faith aspect. Her work is as abstract and honest as her heart in the journey. The love and harmony is 'we are all humans on a journey, weeping, soaring, happy, glorious and in spaces of culture.'
Erin's personal work may be commissioned, with Portrait & Other Subjects starting from $6,000 - $10,000 across media.
A lot of her work is personal (that is not for sale) and also given based on the nature of the work.

Erin no longer accepts any Casual work with the DEC based on self respect and past treatment after 4 years hiring space at Bardia PS and being given little notice at financial (mid year), 3 terms into the massive rebuild upon which "new internal programs" became a sudden priority to 'their community foundation'. The DEC have not communicated and give no decent reason or moral account for disorganised frameworks and poor loyalty constructs. Having built 10 classes as a solo-trader, a girl do-a-thing.
In love with the Oryx Gazelle energy in a Lion year, she has looked to the Sun element, at her own honesty and honouring soul purpose - considered the Japanese proverb as an Empath: 'nana korobi yoaki' - "Fall down seven times, get up 8".
As an Art Teacher, Erin has initiated courses, workshops and classes with an appreciation of each party and their desired benefits to be gained from participating. Specific programs have a holistic approach to teaching, endeavoring to promote well- being and personal growth. The Holistic Arts and integrated cultural programs, as well as Sapphire's Light Healing Services was established in 2018.
Philosophy on Teaching - Fire, Light & Energy in Transformative Potential
“ Burnt Sienna is a rich, warm brown – aligning with the warmth of the earth, the natural world, and a close affinity to colour enrichment through Watercolour introductions had as a 14 year old teenager. For me Sienna is a felt understanding and an energetic one. I am enriched by an evolving understanding of what art can be in the energy. Who I am today reflects growth, awareness and resilience. The holistic aspect of my practice and the role of education and discovery, has enabled me to grow and enrich my life.”
Current Art Projects
‘Spiritual Self & Soul Space’ was held in 2018 as a group exhibition,
