Erin is an Oswego native and returns to the city after more than 20 years away, most of which she spent in Timmins, Ontario.
A self-taught artist, Erin paints in oil and draws striking graphite pencil illustrations. Her work at the Riverside Artisans includes oil paintings and prints of local buildings and landscapes, as well as whimsical retro-style drawings of movie stars and famous movie scenes. She has also contributed hand-painted glass and wooden Christmas ornaments to the shop’s tree, which features handmade ornaments from several artists.
According to Erin, “I like to challenge myself, so I’m always working to refine my techniques and work in other media that are new to me.”
