Erica Eriksdotter, Washington DC metro area Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement I love using bold and bright colors and highlighting a certain part of a flower or paint it from an unexpected perspective. I hope to inspire and make people and homes happy with my art. Born and raised in Sweden, I sold my first painting at the age of 10. Painting has always been a part of my life. There was never a start or a beginning; it has just always been there. Since 2001, I live with my husband and our cats Lola and Rasmus just outside of Washington D.C.
