About Brenda erickson

Greetings! I am a Jersey girl through and through (in the good and bad ways). I live in an awesomely awkward state (New Jersey... and my overactive head) with my saintly patient husband., I have a beautiful garden full of perennials that inspire me with color and texture; I also have a colorful and hopeful heart which guides much of my imagery.

I am a self taught artist, trying new things, breaking the occasional rule, always looking to nature for inspiration, and doing my best to be a compassionate human.

As long as I can remember, I have been drawing; but it is only since 2009 that it has become my primary vocation. This is what I was born to do. Creative expression is my lover and I do my best to be attentive.

My compositions are intuitive to my experiences, waking and dreaming, coupled with my optimism for humanity. I love the use of symbolism in alchemic or visual forms to convey a message. My art, like me, continues to evolve and devolve dependent on outside forces and my own life energy. It is a ride, so to speak. A wild ride.

May I also add that I am an Usui Reiki Master and a student of Shamanism.
