Erin is adept at many mediums.  A medium has its own languange and one must be willing to play with it until communication has been established.  Erin works in Acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, pen and ink, found object sculpture, whatever else she can get her hands on--often mixing things up into multi-media compositions.  She plays with materials until the beauty starts flowing through her fingers and the art takes over--creating itself.


Danica showed Erin a picture of this crumbled temple and Erin decided to paint it. She learned later that many people had died as they sought refuge in this mosque and it was bombed. Erin sent it to Amici, Bosnia for there was no better place for it. It turns out that these ruins had been bulldozed and a new mosque erected. Many felt disenfranchised by this and the rift it cause in the community was healed by hanging Erin's painting in the new mosque.
