Erica fell hard for painting at an early age and sold her first painting at the age of 10. It was a small watercolor piece of a delicate landscape with a red balloon floating in the air.

She later applied what she’d learned from working with watercolors for many years to acrylic, diluting every brushstroke with water for thin thin layers, and she had found her style.

Many trials and errors later, failures and successes, art shows up and down the East Coast, blending her Swedish and U.S. cultures, 70+ commissions worldwide, and many tears and lots of joy – she brings all this to every brushstroke. She brings all her experience and dedication to her art. More, she brings her whole heart.

Each painting starts with a pencil sketch directly on the canvas before each thin layer is applied. Typically, she paints the eyes of a pet first to bring the pet to life to keep her company while the rest is unveiled. For bridal bouquets she starts with one kind of flower first.

“Thank you Erica for everything. Your extraordinary talent and your extraordinary heart. It’s been so amazing working with you and we look forward to [commissioning our 4th painting with you]”
