My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


Library + Erika = awesomeness

I have recently rediscovered the library. The funny thing about the library as that when I was a kid I totally lost books and videos, and was always afraid to go back because there would be some enormousness fine or I was on some black list of never being allowed in the library. :) Well the library in my area is linked to several libraries around town, including Oregon College of Art and Craft. Since I didn't go to art school- I read a lot of art books or used the internet for reference. Now you can order books online and have them shipped to your library of choice and you can either go pick them up or have them sent to your house. I think I might have overloaded on books.

I have been in the studio working away at mainly some industrial paintings- I am just really enjoying doing the wires and how simple and complex that they can be. I am also loving how Portland is such a little city but the industrial district is small but large at the same time.

Have a creative weekend and creative thoughts to one and all.
