|Painting has always been my passion.
Painting places, people and even their pets is a privilege.
After graduating from Florida State University, where I was formally
trained in watercolor painting, oil painting, figurative drawing,
ceramics, sculpture, portraiture, I have spent the past 15 years
developing my skills as an artist.
In 1995 I founded my company, Erin Marie Designs, working as an
independent contract artist creating decorative murals, hand-painted
furnishings and custom paintings for clients across the Southeast.
Painting children’s rooms is my favorite project. I love the creativity
it allows and I enjoy the child’s reaction when they see
their beautiful new room.
Rooms can be customized with anything from simple borders to
detailed murals, depending on the client’s needs. Custom canvases
for children’s rooms have become a growing facet of my business.
These pieces are a fun way to add a very special personalized touch.
Examples can be viewed on this web site.
I also specialize in custom portraiture. My portfolio includes
watercolor and acrylic paintings of children, pets, homes and boats. I
prefer to paint from photographs provided by the client or myself.
Working primarily from photographs provides the client flexibility
and allows me more creative license.
Being a native Floridian, I have developed a true appreciation of our
State’s simple natural beauty and rich architectural history. Living in
Miami provides me the perfect surroundings for
the tropical “still life” paintings and “plein air” inspired landscapes.
Examples of my the style and techniques can be seen
throughout this website.
