Erin Huybrechts Davis

The animals of Colorado are a constant source of inspiration for me. I see great flocks of birds and geese flying across the sky, and small birds eating dried sunflowers in my yard and I want to paint pictures of them. There are colors in the landscape and sky that I am inspired by too. Sometimes I miss my wet Virginia forests so I paint about my memories and the vegetation found on the east coast. I'm also inspired by patterns and imagery from Asia and from Buddhist and Hindu philosophy. My paintings are metaphors for experiences I have had in my life or they are made to encourage people to think about our changing environment.  I'm not sure where my experiments will lead me, but I'm just happy to keep on painting.

I've always been a painter for as long as I can remember.  I grew up in Roanoke, Virginia and then earned a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Painting and Printmaking.  From there I traveled to India, Nepal and Peru before returning to Virginia to get a master's degree in education from Virginia Tech. From there I finally settled down in Longmont, Colorado and I have lived here for the past 9 years. 

 After visiting the botanic gardens in Dublin, I made this little painting.

I have been painting for craft fairs and have sold original art, prints and cards at Colorado handmade markets such as the Firefly Handmade Market, The Sugarplum Bazaar, and the Horseshoe Market. The maker's markets have opened up a whole world for me of encouraging creative people, inspiration, and a venue for me to show my work that is neither a traditional gallery or a publication. My art seems to spring from this movement and I am so honored to be a part of such an inspiring group of people. 

 

Artist Statement (Written by my lovely husband):

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.  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.
