After a long day of reporting the news in Charlotte, painting is Erika’s favorite escape.  She picked up the hobby about five years ago — first creating works for friends and family, then selling her pieces online.  Erika is a self-taught abstract expressionist who loves experimenting with new color combinations and techniques, and draws much of her inspiration from interior design.  Some of her favorite artists include Willem De Kooning, Franz Kline and Sally King Benedict.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

So many times I struggle to find the right words… painting means that I don’t have to.

There is a tremendous freedom in pouring emotion out onto a canvas, layering on thoughts and texturing in personal expression.

The artwork that I create is abstract but not by design. I do not feel led to produce pieces that fit within the confines of any defined style of art.

Inspiration to paint usually starts with an idea or image, formed over a period of time, which I mentally revise until I feel pulled to work the idea out onto a canvas.

I find a rhythm and movement to my paintings (within the process and once completed) that are likely an extension of my personality and how I am uniquely made…overtly simple though heavily textured with bold, colorful strokes of influence…far & near, past & present.

To transform a canvas in a way that pleases me is self- serving.

To transform a canvas in a way that pleases others is rewarding.

I’m always hopeful that the latter is true.

– In her own words
