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.
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.
My Studio interior is filled with Baby's Breath.
