PRESERVE YOUR WEDDING MEMORIES WITH A BRIDAL BOUQUET PAINTING
Hi, I’m Erica!
I’m a Swedish-born, Washington D.C.-based painter specializing in pet portraits and bridal bouquet paintings.
Since selling my first painting at the age of 10, I’ve had the honor of helping many customers around the world add more meaning, culture and depth to their homes. They trust me to come back for a second (or fifth!) commission within a couple of years.
Martha Stewart Weddings refers to these bridal bouquet paintings as a “creative option for preserving your posy,” and others say it’s the perfect anniversary gift. Many are moved to tears when they unwrap the paintings, or see their loved ones open their thoughtful gift.
My process is easy as I work off of photos to create detailed paintings. We collaborate throughout the process and you get to see behind-the-scenes photos as your painting comes alive in my studio.
Paintings ship worldwide for free and I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Follow Along Every Step
I share photos, videos and even paint live throughout via instagram to bring you closer to the creative process as your pet comes to life. I share close ups of the brushstrokes, ‘before and after’ photos of sessions and fun real-life glimpses into the studio. Each painting has its own hashtag and instagram stories are saved. Some customers love to follow along and share with friends or with the recipient after they’ve given the painting, and others print the photos as a bonus keepsake.
Many customers commissions me to do a bridal bouquet as an anniversary gift.
Daniel, of Northern Ireland, did just that for their 1st anniversary. He wanted something special and a way to preserve the bouquet that meant so much to them. His wife loved it.
“Erica, I cannot describe what it means to me! I love your work and I love flowers so my bridal bouquet was extra special to me and to have a painting of it which captures it so exactly and which I can look at forever is amazing. It’s a very special and personal gift which I’ll treasure forever.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Erica Eriksdotter fell hard for painting at an early age and sold her first painting as a 10 year old in Sweden where she was born and raised. It was a watercolor piece of a simple landscape with a red balloon floating in the air.
She’s a third-generation fine arts painter and continued to paint throughout her teens, finishing watercolor pieces while on the phone with her girlfriends or while traveling in Europe. To her, painting was an essential way of being.
After years of working with watercolors she applied the technique to acrylics – diluting every brushstroke with water for thin, thin layers, and she had found her style, and a new home outside of Washington D.C. at the age of 20.
She works the same way as the old masters, one brushstroke at a time, without any shortcuts. With their detailed and realistic look, pet portraits take 20-50 hours over a stretch of a few weeks but each finished painting is a culmination of Erica’s 30 years of dedication in the studio and the blend of her two cultures. She brings all this to every brushstroke. More, she brings her whole heart.
She lives in Reston, Virginia, outside of Washington, D.C. with her college sweetheart (another creative), their two year old son, Mason, who was born with a brush in his hand, and their two cats, Rasmus and Lola, who often joins her in the studio.
“Thank you Erica for everything. Your extraordinary talent and your extraordinary heart.”
“A huge thank you.”
“I can’t thank Erica enough for the time and effort she invested in this painting. She is an extremely talented artist, and a caring and thoughtful person.”
“Erica is such a unique artist whose warmth and care goes in every individual project.”
“You’re first-class all the way!”
“It looks amazing! I just wanted to say thank you again, you were wonderful to work with and I’m so happy to have this as a reminder of our wedding day.”
