Featured Artist: Erin Huybrechts Davis

Erin Huybrechts Davis has been an artist her entire life.  A wanderer, traveler, philosopher and naturalist, Erin has a constant stream of new ideas for producing works of art. Born in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, and now residing in Colorado, the mountains and woods have served as a constant source of inspiration.  The majority of Erin’s artworks contain elements of nature; animals, plants, weather, and ecosystems.

Erin is an artist in a holistic sense; while painting is her primary focus as an artist, she also is an illustrator, potter, and teacher.  Erin lives in Longmont with her husband and two young children. Her studio space is in her home where she enjoys spending time painting each day. Erin’s paintings are made with acrylic and spray paint on board with recycled wooden frames.
