Art started as therapy for Erika Rachel after the passing of her father and her divorce which happened around the same time. She moved back to her hometown and began her full time career as an artist. Erika is self taught and constantly looking to learn more about the industry she works within. Her style is influenced by her mood and her available tools. Her goal is to speak more authentically through her work, to be transparent about her feelings and findings as she learns more about herself, humanity and the world around her.

Her parallel goal is to encourage people to do what they love for a living. To make their passion a career, or to see their current career as an artistic expression.
