Erin is a gifted portrait artist. When I look at the painting of my daughter and me days after birth, I remember how her head felt nuzzled into my chest while she slept.

I purchased a charcoal drawing from Erin as a gift to my husband. He took the full 12 weeks of parental leave offered by his company after our first son was born and it was such a special time for the two of them. I would often catch them snuggling on the sofa after breakfast and was able to send a photo of that sweet moment to Erin. She recreated it in the most beautiful, sentimental, and authentic way. My husband was brought to tears upon seeing it for the first time and everyone in our extended family can't stop talking about how incredible her rendering is. We got it framed and hung it in my husband's home office for him to look at during his work day. This will undoubtedly become a family heirloom and I can't recommend Erin enough. She was professional, timely, and so great to work with. If you want a high-quality, meaningful gift for a loved one, there is no better option than one of her masterpieces.

Erin takes moments and turns them into memories. Her portraiture does more than just tell a story — it captures her subjects’ heart and soul. She draws out only what’s essential and brings those elements to life in breathtaking ways . . . When I surprised my husband with a portrait of him with our son, we were both brought to tears. We’d enthusiastically recommend Erin to anyone!

Erin, Just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful portrait you made for us as a gift from our daughters (it was the pencil drawing of three generations — great grandmother, granddaughter, and grandson). We are moved and thrilled! I've just had it framed and it's hanging in our home for us to love every day :-)

My Mom absolutely loves the charcoal portrait Erin created for her. She was shocked in a positive way to receive such a meaningful gift and has told me many times how much she appreciates it. It's amazing how well Erin captured not only the likeness but also the essence of my mother and her dogs. Additionally, the artwork makes an important relationship lasting. I imagine it will hang in my home one day.

Your drawing of my daughter and me totally blows me away, thank you! She has been proudly showing it around the household. I finally got a chance to really see it. Her arms and her lips and face... I can almost feel that newborn softness when I look at it!

Erin's work was so wonderful. We had a photo turned into a custom portrait of my parents reading to our kids for Christmas and they loved it. It was so sentimental for them to have such a moment captured in time. They just got a new house for retirement and have this as their key piece of art when you walk in the door now. We can't thank Erin enough for all of her care and attention to making this a truly meaningful gift that they will always have.

I absolutely love it — I don’t know art terms but I feel like the charcoal communicates the intensity of all the emotions that day.

Thanks again for the drawing, Erin! It's even better in person and it will be so nice to have a piece of art to remember a moment in this time in our lives.
