Biography: Growing up with severe developmental and physical disabilities never deterred Erin from pursuing a meaningful and independant life. After years of disability orientated day programs, Erin was accepted into On Campus, an inclusive post secondary initative at the University of Alberta. It was here while taking a early chilhood development art class with her personal facilitator Pamela that the two discovered a love and ability to paint together. Erin and Pamela have been painting together for over three yrs now. Erin has since moved over to the fine arts department to take 400 level figure painting classes. The two women have had the privilage of being under the instruction of artists such as Harold Pearse, Allen Ball, and Daryl Rydman at the UofA, as well as Sam Cramer and Kathryn Hines at the Edmonton City Arts Centre. Up until now all work created by the two women has been donated to organizations and charites such as the University of Alberta Madrigal singers, S.C.A.R.S animal rescue society, ihuman youth group, and Lansdown Daycare send a child to camp fundraiser. Many of Erin's pieces have been displayed on the third floor gallery in the fine arts building of the UofA, and the ladies hope to have thier first solo show later this year.
