Fire, Light & Energy in
Burnt Sienna embodies the consciousness of the raw acumen, passionate-fire velocity & water-consciousness - from womb knowing as a Woman, I fill my own cup soaring in Colour Milieu. This is who I am. Rich, Warm, Lush, Everygreen in Consciousness. I am understood in auric Indigo and Rainbow Essence, floral bloom.
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.
Erin's personal work may be commissioned, with Portrait & Other Subjects starting from $6,000 - $10,000 across media.
Upcoming Art Projects
