Lives & works in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Born in the mid-fifties in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, Erika attended Kansas City Art Institute and the Feminist Studio Workshop in Los Angeles before settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico (whose landscape she had dreamed), where she has lived and worked for over 40 years. Her work has been shown and collected internationally. 

“I am an unrepentant maker of things. I believe objects that are made with intent carry resonance that can shift energy, power, and beliefs. Clear intent focused by will and imagination are the components of a spell. I make spells in the form of objects.”
