Erica graduated cum laude from Fresno State with a B.A in Fine Art. She studied drawing, painting and various cultural periods of art history.
Her works and bio were featured in On the Verge, a student-run magazine at Fresno State. Erica has also participated in regional and national juried shows such as the 9th and 11th annual Reveiller exbibit in Madera, CA and the Wo-man-ful-ly exhibit in Visalia, CA.
Growing up, Erica had limited speech and difficulties in communication because she did not learn how to speak until she was five years old. This made drawing and painting her primary means of communications until she developed speech and vocabulary. Erica says because of this, she decided to pursue a career as an artist.
She hopes students and parents will see art not only as drawing with crayons but also as a creative outlet to express one's own thoughts, views and feelings.
