” I am a Fine Oil Painter and Graphic Designer born and raised in Southern California. I have practiced my craft ever since I could pick up a pencil. I studied under the Master artist Michael Ward. From there, I went on to attend California State University Northridge where I majored in the Fine Arts. Transferring from CSUN to Art Institute of California Los Angeles, I graduated with a B.S. degree in Graphic Design.
After going through years of trauma and drama while growing up with a family of full of turmoil, addiction and depression, I now achieve my dreams of being a prolific oil painter. I use my art as a personal form of therapy to help heal myself as well as others. I have lost 3 people who were extremely close to me to suicide, including my brother, best friend, and stepdaugher. I believe one of the reasons why so many people are unhappy today is because we have lost our connection to ourselves, to nature and to one another. I intend for my art to serve as a bridge into consciousness that we are all one and connected. I strive with every finished work to invoke feelings of empowerment within oneself and the divine connection that unifies us all. ” – Erica Robin
