Erika Lee Sears
A self-taught artist from Portland, OR, Erika has devoted every day of her life to art and has carved a place for it in her daily routine. It’s in her everyday that we see our everyday. Her still-lifes reflect moments of joy, peace, simplicity, and even humor in an otherwise chaotic world. Moments that Erika is deliberately taking the time to savor and commemorate. Moments that may otherwise be overlooked and lost. Her whimsical broad brushstrokes accentuate the ephemerality of time and exhibit a mastery of what’s essential to the story. Each vignette is a reminder to stop and smell the roses… every day.
