Showcasing a delightful contrast between painting and woodcut relief printmaking, Erin’s work reflects a joy she has discovered in working across two disciplines that have very different creative processes. One is spontaneous and intuitive, while the other is more planned and methodical. One often informs the other, with elements from her design work flowing into the imagery in her paintings (and vice versa). Working between the two brings a balance to her art making.
Erin has a deep interest in the creative process and the relationship that exists between creativity and maintaining positive mental health. This has very much been informed by her own art practice and a great sense of balance and well-being that creativity brings to her life.
A finalist in the 2016 and 2017 Muriel Hopper Hutt Art Awards, Erin has recently completed her Honours Diploma of Art and Creativity at The Learning Connexion. She works from her Upper Hutt home studio and where she can be found creating amongst the happy chaos of life with two beautiful little girls.
