Background

Erin is a contemporary figurative artist working and living in Toronto, Canada. Using quick and decisive gestural markings over acrylic based images her goal is to create people in everyday situations in an expressive and dream like world. Her concern is not to recreate reality as it exists but rather to evoke a feeling and an atmosphere that transports the viewer into a world of personal interpretation. 

Her work is sold internationally and has been exhibited in Canada, the US, Australia and the UK. She was recently selected by Saatchi Art as their "One To Watch" and by Saatchi Art's chief curator, Rebecca Wilson, as one of "20 Emeriging Artist in the World to Follow". Designlines Magazine named her one of Toronto's "Six New Art Stars" and blogTO counted her in their "Top 10 Most Talked About Artists In Toronto". She is represented in the UK, NYC and Australiasia . Erin has upcoming exhibits in Toronto, Australia, Stockholm, Edinburgh, London, Miami and NYC.
