I'm Erika.


I am an author, illustrator, painter, art instructor and lover of all things whimsy.  My first children's book, Queen Quail is Quiet, was published in in 2013.  My work has a place in children's books, home decor for girl boss office spaces and chic baby nurseries.  I work mainly in watercolor and pencil.  

Even though most of my time is spent drawing and painting, I also love thrifting and decorating the house which is a constant work in progress.  I hate cheese on it's own and get weak in the knees for ice cream. I currently live in Denver, CO with my husband Raul and our two princesses, Addy and Zoe.

I write freelance for art blogs and proofread for other creative business owners. 

Some of my Sweet Clients include: ZEM Brush and Vinco LLC
