My name is Erica and I paint realistic custom portraits of dogs and cats that grief counselors say help my customers work through losing a pet. My art has been featured wildly in the press including Washington Post, My Modern Met and on national and global television.
I grew up in Sweden as the youngest of three daughters and with a beloved yorkshire terrier named Lucas. I loved to paint from an early age and I sold my first painting at age 10.
With a long waitlist for my sought after portraits, I created a new option to get a meaningful pet portrait – a course with me! How to Paint a Dog Portrait is an 11-week interactive online course, available only once a year, that teaches the process of painting a realistic dog portrait to painters who want to learn new skills and level up as a wholehearted artist for self-fulfillment or become the next professional pet portrait artist. It’s designed to fuel your passion to paint and sustain you as a wholehearted artist with support for mental-, emotional-, and physical health.
Now there’s a new way to work with me, join me for a fun and relaxing paint along! We can all need a new adventure to tap into the joy of creativity. Don’t know how to start? I got you covered every step of the way.
