Collection: Erika Roberts

Erika's Story:

Ever since I was a child, I have loved the relationship between nature and art. I was born in Mississippi and grew up on a small piece of farmland in northern Tennessee. I spent much of my childhood tromping around the woods, splashing in the creek and drawing my daydreams. I credit this childhood with planting and nurturing my love for art.

This passion blossomed in high school, where I took every single art class offered and I attended Tennessee Governor’s School for the Arts. I started college (Lipscomb University) with big dreams of fashion and interior design, but along the way, I found myself graduating from University of Tennessee College of Law. After passing the bar, I moved to Memphis, where I practiced law for nearly ten years. Now, instead of tromping in the fields, I was hustling to and from the courthouse and fell in love with that vibrant city.

Although practicing law was my main focus, the thirst to create never ceased. I painted pieces for my home and others, sewed aprons and dishtowels, designed a small collection of children’s clothing and peg dolls. A friend invited me to show my work at an art walk, and I took a small collection to show. At the end of the evening, I had sold every single piece, and I was hooked. This was my heart. Creating art. Where I needed to be.

Fast forward to 2017 - I traded my briefcase for brushes and jumped into painting and small business ownership full-time. I have been sharing and selling my art ever since! I am humbled to create for a living and am so thankful for the support of my stockists and collectors for your continued support!
