One-of-a-Kind Ceramics and Paintings
Erin enjoys the journey, from creating, through learning, to doing the work and mastering the completion. She creates one of a kind functional ceramics and hand thrown pottery including casseroles, mugs, bowls, vases and small platters.
Erin also paints with acrylics. Some of her most unique paintings pair still life studies of ceramic pots together with floral and natural arrangements in the pots. She is inspired by the people and places around her, as shown in her current Alberta Bound pieces in both ceramics and paintings.

Artists engage the senses and the emotions in their audiences.
I like to engage the emotive senses by providing visual and textural stimuli.”
As a ceramic artist I primarily use medium fire, cone six clay. I use under-glazes, glazes and carving and enjoy taking simple forms like mugs and bowls to create one of a kind pieces.
In painting I use acrylics on canvas in a variety of sizes. Using generally bright colours I work with photographs or still life arrangements to achieve an intimate connection with the viewer.
