The vibrant art of Erin Rogers Pickering
Erin is a professional illustrator creating a wide range of illustrated images, for corporate and individual commissions. Her professional and creative work reflects a long history of illustrating.
Bright, whimsical, light-hearted illustrations created with a semi-loose black ink line drawing, then painted with fresh and vibrant watercolors. The more vibrant the better! Color is my driving force.
I found watercolor in college, while getting my degree in Fashion Design and Illustration, and was immediately fascinated by its vibrancy, fluidity, and the challenge of a medium that can’t be entirely controlled. It is exciting – often nerve wracking… especially nearing the completion of a piece. So I continue to experiment and learn.
Born and raised in New York City, I now live in NJ just a few miles outside of the city. When I am not creating art, or teaching it, I am hanging out with my husband, our daughter, and friends.
