Hi, I'm Erika Barriga.
welcome fellow artists at heart
As far back as I can remember, I have always wanted to draw but felt like my art was nothing but 1 dimensional stick figures. I taught myself how to draw and create digital illustrations in 2006. After having success with computer generated art, I still could not get the organic feel that I loved in my work. I sketched, studied and started painting with watercolor in 2010.
I was dedicated to teaching myself and this hard work strengthened my storytelling by leaps and bounds. I finally achieved my dream by publishing my first children's book, Queen Quail is Quiet, in 2013.
However, my heart is with watercolor and I have worked with it ever since. Now my passion is helping other people connect with their creative side.
I feel like it's a horrible shame when people who wish they could be creative feel like they can't. As a result, I have started to make instructional materials for others to connect with their inner artist. Read Erika's Story
