Erika Lovelace - Artist
FJ: What is your background?
Erika: I've been doodling since I can remember! I took a beginning art class right after high school, but I'm mostly self-taught.
FJ: What does your work aim to say?
Erika: I hope my art, helps you fantasize about being at the beach or somewhere tropical. When you get stressed out, my Loveshacks are meant to “take you away” to paradise….We all need a “safe place” - a sacred spot to visualize and dream.
FJ: Who are your biggest influences?
Erika: My family and friends are my biggest influences. Jackson Pollock, Shag, Lichtenstein, Basquiat, Keane, Coop and Warhol are my heroes
