Are you a beginner artist finally looking to give your passion the importance it deserves?
Have you committed to your artistic improvement, but feel a bit overwhelmed with all the tutorials/courses out there that offer great information, but perhaps are too much of an investment or may not be appropriate for the level you're currently at?
Are you an intermediate artist looking to find your voice and gain the confidence you need to finally start getting your work out there?
Have you taken a few art classes or courses that have lacked providing you with the fundamental art skills you need to truly succeed artistically?
I help aspiring artists in three different ways:
1. I create helpful and inspiring content that I share through both my blog and my YouTube channel that you can access completely for free.
2. I run a Facebook group in which I'm in a few times every week providing sketchbook prompts, art tips and inspiration for you to stay consistent with your art. E-mail subscribers can join this group for free.
3. I have a membership site on Patreon, through which I offer my most exclusive content in the form of:
-Real-time drawing/painting tutorials (each with its own downloadable outline drawing, supply list and high-resolution reference photograph)
-Access to my downloadable 14-page workbook titled How to Discover Your Artistic Style and Voice
-Access to an original art-reference photo vault that is updated every month
-Live classes on Art Fundamentals
-Monthly Creative Assignments especially designed to challenge your creativity and push you forward artistically
-Weekly sketchbook prompts delivered to your e-mail inbox every Monday
4. I offer individualized one-on-one lessons through Skype to people all over the world that are interested in improving fast. I base my classes on drawing and painting programs that I have created throughout my years teaching so that nothing is left out and I provide specific exercises based on current skill level and goals.

Thoughts from some of my students/community members:
Last week I completed a Skype session with Erika. We had a brilliant class which I thoroughly enjoyed and learned so much from. Erika was well prepared for the lesson and shared her screen to clearly demonstrate the concepts. I learned so much that I will now work on and develop with further practice.
I am keen and excited to practice further and develop the concepts she has taught me. Erika is clear and enthusiastic in explaining the topics. I understood each point before we progressed to the next step. After completion of the lesson, Erika also sent me exercises and tips for me to practice. I would highly recommend Erika for art lessons!

I have followed Erika for a while on her blog, Pinterest, watched her videos, and receive her newsletter, enjoying her clear description of art concepts. Now I’ve been lucky enough to join her Facebook art group, watch her weekly live streams and had a personal Skype class. She is approachable, fun, and KIND! She quickly figured out where I was in my creative journey, encouraged me, and gave great feedback and tips to help me move forward.

Erika is energetic, talented, and the love she has towards the art, as well as for art enthusiasts shows in all she does. I truly admire and respect her work, as well as her work ethic. I appreciate the time she has dedicated to inform and teach me different artistic skills. I would love to be able to take more classes with her and be able to work with her in the future.
