Hello from Erin

Allow us to paint you a picture -

 two little elementary school girls;

Erin, blonde with exotic eyes

and Amanda, big round eyes

with brown hair. These two girls

played like "wild boys" during

outside play but when inside

were quiet and reserved.

Over time, they lost touch, 

as kids do, while each finding

a befitting path in life. Erin,

an art teacher and artist. 

Amanda, a producer and creator.

Both pleased with these

outcomes yet unknowingly

craving more.

Fast forward to 2019, the two

girls now women, each a moment

past 40 find each other playing

wildly outside again, only this time,

on a modern digital playground.  Independently each liberated that

wild energy and fostered that 

previously cloaked passion that 

only used to sneak out in

rare moments. It is this energy

that garnered the other's

attention once again,

and brought them back together.

This SHE collaboration is the result

of past, reconnection and growth.

We are Erin + Amanda.

We invite you to join us

and play on our playground.

After decades of creating

and thinking about art, and

16 years of teaching the subject

and its story, I began to

use a sketchbook as my journal.

Instead of writing, I chose to draw.

 I was unsure what I needed

and wanted to say, and without

the right words to explain,

I chose to put a pen to paper

and allowed my heart and

soul do the work for me. 

I titled this group of work 2019. 

It is my diary of exhaustion,

anxiety, despair, perseverance,

mania, naivete, the search of self

and love. And, most importantly,

my unconditional love of Art.

you change your clothes.”

Hello from Erin

Basquiat once said,

“I don’t think

about art

when I’m working.

I try to think

about life.”

OUR STORY

Lover of nature...how the light, 
the season, the time of day, 

can make the same corner 
of the earth look completely 
different in one breath.

I'm intrigued about how

that makes me feel

and my photography 
is an attempt to evoke human 
emotions through the lens

of landscape...playfulness,

isolation, celebration, 
energized, at peace. 

After 20 years in advertising, including the last 10 years running my own

Production + Creative Consulting Firm

I was dedicated to the expression

of other brands. Through this

collaboration, I have now given

myself permission to create from

my point of view.

I need the empty fields round me;

and my legs pounding along roads;

and sleep; and animal existence.”
